Krishnagar (WB): Ever heard of a thief
answering a telephone call, agreeing to return stolen goods
and returns them too! It does happen.
Kartik Mondal was crestfallen when he woke up on Monday
morning to find that his house had been burgled.
A thief had broken into his house at Chapra in Nadia
district on Sunday night and made away with valuables,
including cash and mobile phone, besides LIC bonds and Kisan
Vikash Patra certificates, police said.
A school teacher, Mondal, was distraughted and shocked.
But a neighbour's suggestion that he should ring up his cell
"It kept ringing. Then a man answered in a hush-hush
tone. When I pleaded him to return my stolen belongings, he
expressed his inability saying he needed them to run his
family," Mondal said.
The teacher then requested him to return at least the LIC
bonds, Kishan Vikash Patras and other documents which he
agreed to do.
The thief asked him to go to a place near a field and
collect his documents.
Mondal hurried to the place and found his documents kept
there in a packet, they said.
