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 number worked!

"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.
