Bengaluru: A court here on Tuesday sentenced a man who had brutally assaulted a bank employee inside an ATM kiosk with a machete in 2013 sending a shockwave across the country to 12 years of imprisonment.
The 64th City civil court awarded 36-year-old Madhukar Reddy 10 years rigorous imprisonment and two years simple imprisonment besides a fine of Rs 10,000.
The sentences would run concurrently, the court said.
Thiruvananthapuram native Jyothi Uday, a manager at the Corporation Bank, had gone to an ATM kiosk on the morning November 19 in 2013 in the city when Reddy who was waiting with a machete entered there.
He closed the shutter of the kiosk and made a murderous assault on Jyothi.
He took away the cash and debit card and fled.
Jyothi survived the attack miraculously after undergoing a major surgery.
The accused was later arrested in February 2017 from Madanapalle in Chittoor district in Andhra Pradesh during the routine arrest of suspicious people.
