According to the reports, the quartet took the victim, who was bleeding excessively after the attack to a nearby ATM to loot him of the money, but the kiosk was out of cash. Fearing the situation going out of control and gaining attention by the people the gang quickly changed Thakur's blood-soaked shirt and made him wear another one.
