Mangalore: Man Accused of Stealing Valuables of Crash Victims Arrested
Daijiworld Media Network – Mangalore (SP)

Mangalore, Jun 2: One of the accused, who allegedly relieved the air crash victims of their valuables by posing as a volunteer in relief operations, was arrested by a police team led by the district crime intelligence bureau inspector, Venkatesh Prasanna, on Monday May 31. The arrested has been identified as Sattar (23), a resident of Haleneeru House near Kuppepadav School.

Gold ornaments hidden by the accused in the pen of his home where poultry birds are kept, have been recovered by the policemen. Reportedly, Sattar, residing near Maravoor mosque and working as a city bus driver on Bajpe route, in the company of Irshad alias Baddumunde, an auto rickshaw driver from Jokatte, clandestinely pocketted the jewellery items, while posing as if he was trying to help move dead bodies out of the crash site on Saturday May 22.

When Sattar was moving in a car for selling some of the ornaments so stolen, based on a tip off, a police team arrested him. Besides arresting the accused, they recovered about 130 grams of gold ornaments he was taking with him. Based on the information they extracted from him, the policemen visited his home and recovered 127 grams of gold ornaments, which had been hidden in the pen.

The policemen have put the value of gold ornaments so recovered, at Rs 6.37 lac. Sattar has been handed over to Bajpe police station for further investigation, and he was produced in a court here. In the meantime, Altaf and Irshad, the two accomplices who reportedly helped Altaf in is ulterior motives, are absconding.

    Good work by the police. They can solve the cases in less then a day also. They are to intelligent. They will only solve very small cases. There are many big cases left for many years. They say they are investigating for life long. This is because they can make money from those investigations for there life long as long as investigation goes on. Let us come to this case did any one complain about the lost property i dont think so because that does not matter much than whom they lost. They dont want the thief but they want answers for the crash. Till now there is nothing.

    I remember a incident when I was staying in a hostel in mumbai. The asst cook robbed a piece of cocunut. He was then questioned & punished by One Mr X-from Mangalore. He & his friends bashed this cook & cook fell to their feet. Cook was from a very poor family from mangalore as i know. This Mr X WHO BASHED THE COOK AS I UNDERSTAND WAS ROBBING 1 LAKH RS A MONTH IN CUSTOMS . HE ALSO TOLD ME WHEN HE CAN GET BRIBES OF 1LAKH IN CUSTOMS WHY SHOULD I GO TO GULF??? WHAT DO U SAY WHAT ABOUT THIS !!!! BEFORE WRITING ANY COMMENTS WE MUST CHECK HOW MANY OF US ARE CLEAN. SOME ROBBERIES ARE IN FRONT OF US & OTHERS ARE INDIRECT ROBBERIES. ALL ARE ROBBERIES AFTERALL.

    I just want to say one thing to all the people who have given your valuable comments that Thief is named to a person when he is caught while stealing something which is recognized by some people and the prominent person is the person who is not being caught while stealing.. this is actually a logic just think about it.. So by this incident we can find out there might be hell lot of people who went there only to steal but not to help...
    Im not telling all are thiefs but some might be ..God bless mangaloreans....

    Mr. Aadil Khan, Kasaragod, Saudi Arabia, Yousuf, Qatif ksa and frank, Mangalore,
    You people can even stay 10 decades being a muslim and you will not find discrimination with your blind eye upon Saudi society. Is there freedom of religion? Freedom of religion is only to practice Islamic religion. How many Christians are caught for brining Bible to Saudi Arabia and you are not finding discriminations in two decades? How many Hindus stamped exit merely because of a Hindu. How many Christians are caught for worshiping our God? Many Indians are afraid even to comment against Saudi society and quietly work without complaining. If complained to the police or management will back fire case against the accuser and not to the accused. Are you reading Malayalam news paper published from Saudi Arabia a complete biased news paper? Are you a citizen of Saudi Arabia? Ridiculous baseless and hiding facts of statements from your side. I did not had bitter experience. I am brave enough and when God is with me nobody is against meo Do you mean the fundamental hindus r the muslim terrorists brainwashed? How many leaflets you will find in Saudi Arabia against Christians and hindus. Is that humanity? Truth is unable to digest for you.

The most dangerous muslims are Asians and Egyptians. I am an eye witness for the discriminations in Saudi Arabia. The muslims are going for Hajj and pick pocketing pilgrims.

    Vanamali, Udupi, Thank you for you comment on my comment. Please read all the comments or at laest read Ramesh Prabhu Kateel Mangalore/ Bangalore they have mentioned some names of the officials who also deserve to CUT thier HAND . If you go by this principle One day India will be handless.!!!!!!!!!!!
    Every body is sinner. Big or Small
    Sin is a sin.

    Jesus Christ is the only one who took courarge to go against this stoning to death, cutting hand , plucking the eye ball etc. He said "Those who have no sins throw the first stone." Next moment nobdy was there.!!!!!

    WE easily point fingers at others but we forget that it is one finger against four fingers.

    By counting others sins we will not become saints.

    Forgive, motivate, if not pray to God for a change.

    If you judge others you will also be judged.

    What more can i say.

    Good Luck

    Jai HO !

    What this man has done will haunt the one who have lost their dearest in this tragedy.
    Lets Join our hands and Pray for Sattar & many who are like him, that The Almighty touch their Hardened Hearts and show them what Humanity is all about. Let the Law take it's course.

Have you ever been to Saudi and have lived or worked in the Kingdom. Don't air out comments on speculations.During my three decades of stay in Saudi, that too with multi nationals of all faiths, I haven't noticed such descrimination. I think you should correct your impression about this country. Good luck to you.

    GOOD THOUGHT BUT NOT FOR INDIA.

    In INDIA where most of the gvt staff is very much corrupt. the topmost bench is ready to take the biggest share. even if INDIA brings any such tapes, the police will be the first to grab some leftover luggages. we help it unless all of us learn to respect the law. it can happen only when the contries law book is d to the current standards. here a police rapes a girl and sheis tortured so much that she takes her own life and after 10 yrs the policewala get 18 months jail. rediculous. SOMETIMES I FEEL SAUDI LAW IS VERY HARSH BUT THATS WHATY IS REQUIRED FOR THE PEOPLE - THEY SCARED OF LAW AND THATS WHAT KEEPS THEM AWAY FROM CRIME.

    ok the police could cach this guy with some clue.but what about other persons who has hide behind silently who also stolen something.because if you calculate suppose a person travelling from dubai wears at least 20grams gold average then at least 3160 grams(3.16kg) gold must be found in the place from the 158 persons dead.i have no idea whether the gold evaporates after fire or it will melt remain in some other form.

    whoever people came to help should have gather the precious things found in the place and distributed the value equally to the relatives of the all the victims as its is difficult to identify for whome it belongs to.

Bicycles are shoplifted in day light. Laptops are shoplifted by Saudis. Women have advantage with burkas who are shoplifting and I have noticed the cashier complaining of a burka women. Go to Hajj and watch how many people are pick pocketed. Nearly 700 people were caught including all nationalities. Read Arabic news. English news they are hiding the facts. The Indian Pakistani, Bangladeshi and Egyptians are the most dangerous people complain against Indians. As an administrator I have fought for justice and this was irked by the Muslims.

    In US any crime/accident scene is cordoned off immediately by police with a tape "Crime Sceen-Do not Cross".

    Going forward, I suggest Dr VS Acharya to buy this tape and give it to police, so in future all crime/accident sceens are secure for Forensic teams/Investigators/detectives.

    If he has given more concentration on helping the injured or shifting the bodies than picking up the gold then he should be forgiven. It may be that while hepling/shifting he found gold on his path which he picked up (a guess but i don't know). If he has misused the situation totally then he is guilty. I would not call it stealing but i would say he misusing the situation.

Its surprising that we have peole who are encashing such opportunities to their advantage. This act of Sattar has been exposed. Police should investigate and expose those who have done such a henious act. Now as along as Sattar and Irshad are alive they have to carry this dark spot on their personality. Now society would look down upon them and really now on they have to live a life which is full of disgrace and shame.

    He is responsible for few unidentified bodies claims, since all bodies burnt and few relatives identified based on Gold & other ornaments. Very strict punishment to be given to him if he finds guilty. This has to be lesson for other thieves.

    I remember K.K. Shetty always use to ware a nice bracelet and his body is not identified.

    I really wish if every unidentified bodies buries at crash site and if Air India Authority could build a nice monument near the airport it would be great honor to all air crash victims.

Todays world has lost compassion, sex and money sells.If Mangaloreans open their eyes after this horrific tragedy hope our city will improve. Say a prayer for the 23 children who died in horror when you take off from mangalore Airport, cause they are at the end of the Mangalore runway waiting for your prayers.

    i think this guy is has done wrong but the worst is if you people had seen a police person removing the person from the one of the victims and the villagers were speechless as they were in numbers and what could 3 to 4 volunteers do in front of them.

    This is a common practice in India and the world over. Whenever there are accidents or disturbances these type of people make use of the right situation.
    But why don’t we think of the Politicians who rob people’s money ‘legally’ and who cannot be held responsible in any court of law?

    First of all, one should try to find out the motive behind Sattar’s heinous crime, whether his family is suffering from financial crisis.. etc. If he has no such obligations which drive him to steal, then only we can think of punishing him SEVERELY. This is my opinion.

    In the end, any lawyer will rescue him through court on the grounds of ‘no witnesses’ !!!!!

    Good comments from Najam Batrekere, Bajpe.The approch may be different but result would be the same. Mr.Sattar found some gold in the crash site. He did not rob the gold. If Sattar did not pick up the gold, Mr. Krishna Or Mr. Robert D' Souza and Mr. Balvinder Singh would have picked up that gold. Good samaritans are out of stock now. Mr. Sattar is better than Bombay airport Customs officers of 1990's.

    It is quite common when calamities occur anywhere there is mass looting.

    To prevent this the police must have shielded the area and prevented commoners from sneaking in thereby taking complete control through its trained personnel.

    That little bit of gold is stolen is not a great concern as I was wondering whether the black box would be recovered or not as some could have laid their hands on it too as a souvenir.

    Justin, I take offence to your comments as anybody could have laid their hands on valuables.

    Great job done by the police in nabbing 'Sattar'. Ofcourse he needs severe punishment for this ghastly deed. There are many of these 'Sattars' amidst our "administration" who have grabbed the meals out of the mouths of those in distress and sorrow during the recent floods in north Karnataka and are still at large enjoying the power! Any chances of nabbing them?

The police are also colluded in the robberies. If any Indian complains, the complain will not be entertained. Hindus and Christians are discriminated in Saudi Arabia. India is a democratic country and a free nation. These people are taking advantage democracy and robbing while on crash. Shame on Sattar.

    This is rediculous. Though I agree with Mr. Sharief's suggesion, it is not practical in India. However, Police should put him and his associates behind the bar for at least 10 year rigorous imprisonment. I wonder why our Security Personnel allow these thugs to the crash site.

    None are born thieves but circumstances force those who are used to easy money. There were few others who were economically poorer but their intentions were to rescue those victims and nothing else. They struggled those difficult hours without water and food in that sloppy and slippery terrain without expecting any rewards. In life always there are junctions after junctions of two roads, it is the strong will & the good intension in each individual will make him those seems to be difficult but graceful, respectful and God’s chosen roads.

These elements spoiling thier name also the name of community now the poor family of this bad man will be suffer when he is in prison. So bad is always bad. When the whole world is shocking and in the sarrow this gye is taking the advantage of the place of air crash, perhaps any body behind him to support because this job is not so easy when the security of Police is in the sight. So punish him for his deeds not only him but his group.

    Good work by police. unsrupules persons . many other who stole items probably not caught.how come hundreds of people seen at the site of ANY accident any where .there must be strict restriction or only authrised persons should be allowed crowd control at site is a must to prevent stealing by dishonest persons. this person should be tried as fast as possible and if proved guilty should be sentenced harshly.

    It may be difficult for govt to say whose gold it is as many of the people from dubai bring gold. there may be no records as to whose gold it is. . i dont know how govt will solve theownership of gold and many of the items.that is another problem but this thief should be punished severely with out any mercy

He is far worse than  a bank robber because in a bank robbery, no other crying and burning human beings are involved.
