GUWAHATI, Oct 25 - Police today arrested Nayan Barman, the sixth member of the group that had fled with Rs 1.8 crore meant for refilling of ATMs in Guwahati on Wednesday.
Barman was arrested with the help of Village Defence Party and locals of Krishnai in Goalpara district from where the other accused were also apprehended on Thursday.
Police, however, could only recover only Rs 35.5 lakh cash from the possession of the sixth accused. Later, another Rs 10 lakh was recovered from the house of the mother-in-law of Barman.
So far, of the total stolen amount of Rs 1.8 crore, only around Rs 1.6 crore could be recovered.
Police had earlier recovered Rs 1.15 crore from the five accused arrested on Thursday.
Nayan Barman was suspected to be in possession of the remaining amount. While Barman was brought to Guwahati this evening, the other five accused are already in police custody.
Barman will be produced before the court tomorrow.
All the six accused, including the driver of the Brink Arya�s van carrying cash to refill ATMs, fled with the vehicle when three other staff, including a security guard, had stepped into an HDFC Bank ATM at Ganeshguri to refill cash on Wednesday afternoon.
Brink�s Arya is one of the leading providers of transportation and other security-related services to banks and financial institutions.
The van was later found abandoned near the auditorium of the Gauhati Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) at Bhangagarh the very next day.
