The ATM had been broken for some time.
Talk about an expensive meal!
A rat reportedly slipped through a hole in the back of an ATM in northeastern India and began eating the bills inside - $19,000 worth.
The police superintendent in the town of Tinsukia, Mugdha Jyoti Mahanta, said when technicians arrived on June 11 to fix a broken State Bank of India ATM, they found a dead rat inside it and Indian currency notes worth nearly 1.3 million rupees chewed to shreds.
The ATM had been broken since May 20, reports said.
A bank employee told a local outlet an investigation has been ordered about the incident.
