Patna: At a time when WhatsApp is actively being used in India for communication, the free messaging application has helped the Bihar police catch a thief.
Almost a month back, a thief robbed a house in Haroon Nagar Colony at Phulwari Sharif in Patna. The thief fled after pocketing some stuff from the home. However, his act had been captured by a CCTV camera at the main gate of the house.
A month later, smart use of WhatsApp by Aijaz, whose house was robbed, helped nab the thief.
Aijaz had handed over the CCTV recordings to the police. However, police could not identify the thief.
Aijaz, however, captured some pictures of the thief from the CCTV footage and circulated it on WhatsApp.
His intelligence helped residents of the colony nab the thief when he had surfaced on another street in the same area.
