According to a source at the university, the incident happened around 11 pm.
He said two of the robbers were in Police uniform and came to the ATM which was close to the Convocation ground, where they met few students using the machine and they tied them up, vandalised the machine and cart away money.
He said the security men noticed some movement at the place and went to investigate but were overpowered and tied up by the robbers as well.
The source said one of the security men was injured in the incident.
