Shad Mohammad (25), Mustakim (19) and Mohammad Rahul (30), hailing from Haryana, had, in the intervening night of February 13-14, tried to open an ATM in Betma area with a gas cutter, leading to a fire resulting in currency worth Rs 8 lakh getting burnt, Superintendent of Police (rural) Bhagwat Singh Birde said.
