Puttur: Woman's pick-pocket act in bus captured on CCTV, TP official's purse stolen

Daijiworld Media Network – Puttur (SS)

Puttur, Sep 21: A case of pick-pocket was reported in a Puttur-bound private bus from Mangaluru on Tuesday September 20.

A purse belonging to Puttur taluk panchayat planning officer Sukanya was pick-pocketed in the bus and the act of theft had been captured on the CCTV camera in the bus.

The theft came to light when the bus was on a bridge near Boluvar when a female passenger whose age was believed to be below 50 years pick-pocketed Sukanya's purse.


Screengrab from CCTV footage

The suspected woman boarded the bus near Kaladka and sat next to Sukanya who got up as the bus was approaching Puttur. Sukanya kept the mobile handset that was in her hand into the bag as she got ready to alight from the bus. At this juncture, the woman who was seated next to Sukanya put her hand into Sukanya's bag and lifted the purse. It seemed that the woman tried to steal the mobile phone handset but could not lay her hands on it and instead picked up Sukanya's purse.

The woman is suspected to be a member of a gang engaged in pick-pockets and thefts.

Once Sukanya got off the bus, she realised that her purse had been stolen and she contacted the bus. The pick-pocket act came to light when the CCTV footage was checked. Sukanya's purse contained Rs 5,000 in cash and some records.

A complaint has been filed with the Puttur police.

    Rampant pickpocketing gangs used to operate in public transports in Mumbai decades ago; now people have become very smart as they don't keep much cash and are very careful; now these gangs have turned their attention to rural areas where they can find many sacrificial lambs with ease due to lack of awareness!!

    PM had never promised 15 lakhs, an ex it chief commisioner of Mumbai had said that if black money from Switzerland is brought back every Indian can get 15 lakhs in the bank account. Unfortunately this person was originally from Mangalore.... and as it was openly spoken, so those who had illegal Swiss bank accounts moved their money out quickly....later when authorities were asked to probe there were only legal accounts of Indians in Swiss banks.

    Times are changed. Women empowerment is truly successful in many criminal activities all over India. Sathi Savitri behaviour and their deeds are contradictory to the innocent looks. Double face characters !
