    While I do appreciate the efforts put in by the officer to nab the thief it is quite disappointing to see officers of such stature openly hurling extremely filthy words out loud as seen in the video that's been circulating. It is not something that does justice to the uniform they wear. While I know that it is has become a standard for Indian police officers to do so, I feel it is something that should be condemned irrespective of who they deal with.

    Great job. It is sad to see the comments below, here a cop did his job and helped a migrant worker get justice and managed to nab members of a gang fearlessly looting people so just congratulate him or them for the effort. Instead why bring politics, religion, meat and what not other bullshit here. All those writing stuff and arguing here are nothing but hypocrites. You guys first help people with jobs if you can or help people travel abroad and settle down instead you people try to screw others hiring cheap labour. At any chance of helping everyone turns thier back but expect others to help this is bullshit attitude. Just coz there is a column to write stuff you people try to be heroes. Grow up people.

    Please call Modi to mangalore with development projects for our youths. Panjabis are earning good from thier agricultural works. Here in mangalore all bhakths are without decent job for living, doing these odd jobs. BHANDARKAR,JEEVON,SANJAY and all similar supporters can you invitevNarendra modi with some job creating pojects ,. He will not get any resistance from any segments that is for sure wven he wants to travel by road from Goa air port to mangalore.

    Great Job Mr Varun Alva, my friend. Your Brother Arun will be proud of His Brother's daring job. I don't think any thief can escape from your strong Hands. I also thank the Person who came to help by neck grabbing. Very few Citizens come forward in time of need. They are only good to take Photo shots and Accuse Police. Again Thanks Varun

    Verymuch popular among Pork lovers . No restrictions at all, one can enjoy pork without any fear. But in India Sanghis are secretly enjoying beef with fear.

    Kangana Ranaut fought alongisde BJPee leaders and gave us freedom in 2014. So after 2014 we can rob mobiles. Also Kangana got freedom to rob other women's husbands. On another note, stealing, pick-pocket etc. happened even before 2014.
