The Bangalore police has sent a team to Andhra Pradesh to hunt down the ATM attacker who is said to have committed a similar crime and killed a woman there.

The absconding man had attacked a woman at an ATM in the Ananthpur district in Andhra Pradesh and stolen two ATM cards from her on November 11. The woman later succumbed to injuries at a hospital.

Later that week he came to Bangalore and brutally assaulted a woman at an ATM. He stole three cards from her and also a mobile phone which he sold later for Rs 500.

The police managed to arrest the person who purchased the phone but did not get any leads from him.

Both the AP and Karnataka police have no leads on him still.
