ATM Attack - A Few Questions
This is connected to the gruesome attack of a woman inside ATM at Bangalore yesterday. A few preventive steps could've been saved the victim in this case. First mistake is the woman who is refused to oblige. When you are trapped inside the closed room on any account you should confront the assailant. This act will provocative. Instead, she should've simply noted the person's identity and reveal it to the police later. On the bank's part, why didn't they appoint the security guard? Why the doors at the top is in unlocked condition. They have to make custom-made doors with some lock on top. In that way, except the glass door, there is no other hiding option will be available. So, the attacker normally won't dare to do. Most importantly, the incident was reported by some school-children almost after 2 to 3 hours. Till that why no one from the bank monitor the CCTV footage. The CCTV footages should be monitored on real-time. Otherwise there is no meaning of installing such a device inside the ATM. On any account, alongside the real culprit, the bank also should hold responsible for this act. Most of the times, the lawless thugs are exploiting the loophole in the system. A strongly condemnable act and police should capture the culprit immediately.
