Man convicted for 2013 ATM attack in Bengaluru | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: The 64th city civil and session court on Monday found Kondappagiri Madhukar Reddy, 36, guilty in the attack on bank employee Jyothi Uday inside an ATM kiosk of Corporation Bank at Corporation Circle on November 19, 2013.
On her way to work, Jyothi, an employee of the bank’s service branch near BBMP headquarters, had entered the ATM kiosk around 6.30am to draw money for her daughter’s birthday celebrations. She was attacked by Reddy alias Madhu, a resident of Divupalli village, Chittoor district, Andhra Pradesh. “The accused has been found guilty of offences under IPC sections 397 (robbery with attempt to cause death or grievous hurt) and 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of offence). The accused has been acquitted of the charges of attempt to murder and wrongful confinement,” an officer said.
Judge Rajeshwara will announce the quantum of sentence soon.
In her deposition, Jyothi had said: “I begged him with folded hands to spare me. He said he will kill me, pulled out a sickle from his bag, which looked like a gardening tool. He hit me on the head with that sickle. I lost consciousness and fell down on my stomach. He took away my purse, which had Rs 200, a mobile phone, debit card, PAN card and IDs. After some hours, I saw rays of sunlight from the edge of the rolling shutter of the ATM centre. I was unable to move my right hand due to the injury. With my left hand, I started hitting the shutter. Someone opened it and took me to a hospital.”
Bengaluru police had formed 15 teams to trace Reddy, but he was on the run till February 2017. Madanapalli police nabbed him.
