Five suspects arrested over Bulathsinhala ATM robbery

Five suspects have been arrested over the recent robbery of cash to be stored in an ATM machine in Bulathsinhala.

The Police said that a part of the Rs. 20 million which was stolen at the time was also recovered.

A gang had last month thrown chili powder at the men from a private company who had the cash with them and fled before it was stored in the ATM machine.

The Police said that over Rs 1.6 million in cash had been recovered following the arrest today.
