    Shame on people who did that. If it was their own relative? I do not know when people realise.

    We must start a public awareness campaign about such matters. May it be school children trying to pluck mangoes from a neighbour's tree or grown-ups picking up something lying on their way. We must create awareness that taking anything that does not belong to us is a theft it needs to be reported to police. Unless a person understands this, he/she will not hesitate to rob even from corpses such as AIE victims.
