A 43-year-old man, who cheated a boy and his mother on the pretext of helping them to withdraw money from an ATM kiosk and escaped with Rs 9,000, was arrested in New Washermenpet on Thursday.
Police said Jayalakshmi and her 16-year-old son went to a SBI ATM in their neighbourhood to withdraw money. Her son went inside the ATM, while she waited outside.
