In a bizarre incident, a thief suffered a heart attack when he found that the money he had robbed was far in excess of his expectation. He could not contain his joy and suffered a heart attack and a large part of the money went into his treatment. The matter came to light when one of the two thieves was arrested on Wednesday in connection with the theft committed last month in the Kotwali Dehat area and he confessed before the police during interrogation. Bijnor Superintendent of Police, Dharam Veer Singh, said two thieves broke into a public service centre owned by one Nawab Haider on the intervening night of February 16 and 17.
Following a complaint lodged by Haider, over Rs 7 lakh had been stolen from the centre.
The police had registered a case against unidentified accused and launched a probe.
On Wednesday, police claimed to have cracked the case with the arrest of two accused, Naushad and Ejaz, both in their early 30s, from Alipur under the Nagina police station area.
A similar incident was reported in Thailand recently.
A 22-year-old man entered a house with the intention of robbery in Phetchabun Central Province of Thailand but ultimately fell asleep there, it has been reported.
The incident took place in a particular house of Wichian Buri District, Thailand. Police said that around 2 am, Atith Kin broke through the window and entered the house. He was exhausted, so turned on the air conditioner. After that, he thought of taking a nap but he failed to wake up on time.
The owner of the house reported to the police that the thief entered his daughter’s room and turned on the AC. The house owner got suspicious after seeing someone sleeping in his daughter’s room as his daughter was absent on that particular night. When he went on to check, to his utter shock he found an unknown young man sleeping peacefully under the blanket. He immediately informed the police.
