They then handed him over to Kadri police, who registered a case.

    Best is in places like swimming pool etc,they should install not only cctv,but a small locker with key for everyone who can keepinside their valueables and lock it.They can take the key with and fix it to their underwear or swimm suit pockets.numbered lockers are best.So no need of crying and searching thieves is not needed.
