As the shocking episode continued to grab media attention with the CCTV footage of the gory act being beamed, Home Minister KJ George held a high-level meeting to discuss measures to curb such incidents.
    
George said that more than 600 of the total 2,580 ATMs in the city have no security guards.
    
"We want them to deploy security guards immediately or close down the things until suitable arrangements have been made, that's why the Police Commissioner (Raghavendra Auradkar) will take appropriate action," he told reporters.
    
He said that a committee headed by Additional Chief Secretary (Home) has been formed which would hold discussions with managements of banks and law department for drawing up guidelines vis-a-vis ATM security in the interest of customers.
