GUWAHATI, August 30: Rampant issuance of car passes to the Assam Assembly in 2008, often with approval from legislators, is still adding to the already rising crime rate in Assam, especially in Guwahati. Such an incident has come to light when a police patrolling party caught hold of four ATM looters last night. The police saw three youths taking a machine from the ATM installed at the building of the Vinobha gar branch of SBI under Fatasil Ambari police station last night. The police kept on the trail of the vehicle which the three were travelling in. The youths then opted to leave the machine behind near Udalbakra Police outpost, and kept fleeing till the police caught hold of them at Sankar gar at Betkuchi.

The three youths have been identified as Moinul Haque (36) from Mukalmua, Safiqur Rahman (22) from Hajo and Saheb Ali alias Sahjahan (26) from Hajo. The Chevrolet Optra car (AS092400) that was used while committing the crime has an Assam Assembly pass with the validity period ranging from January 1, 2008 to June 30, 2008. The police then asked Saheb Ali to telephone his colleagues, and when he telephoned others came in with another car. However, when they came in front of the police they fled the scene. The police, however, were able to catch the driver of the Alto car (AS01BT3386). The driver has been identified as Saddam Hussain of Satgaon. The machine which the trio was taking away is not one that contains cash. It is a machine being used for updating pass books.
