Additionally, it was found that all 3 suspects have criminal and drug convictions.

The police are now completing their investigation into this case and will then refer to the Deputy Public Prosecutor for further action.

“Following the arrest of the 3 suspects, we also managed to solve 2 more ATM explosion cases belonging to the same bank that happened in Meru in December 2020 and February of last year.”

“All suspects are remanded for 7 days until March 7 (Tuesday) and this case is being investigated under Section 437/379 of the Penal Code,” he added.
