    Looks like he is innocent & not mentally stable. Poor guy,, Police must have forced him to accept what they say. I don't think this guy alone can rob so many temples.

    He really is a carefree fellow, nice smile his luck ran dry. But 12 cops posing for one catch priceless. Should frame this picture.

    Question: Petty thief they show the face,photoshoots etc. But a hard core criminals like rape,murder they put hood around their face.what is the reason? thought in both cases police will file police case??

    the photo is of the thief OR of the police force?
    was the photo of the police personnel needed for catching a petty thief?

    If it was of a notorious criminal - it was justifiable?

    Good catch and in fact habitual thief of place of worships!!!A mistrust about stealing of KAANIKE DABBI etc etc solved somewhat and a mistrust between the communities about the issue which occurs now and then gives food for thought!!Padubidri SI & team has last laugh because this big catch was accidental!!!Congrats to Padubidri Police.
