One of the commuters who boarded a bus, noticed that his mobile phone was missing. He asked the bus driver to stop the vehicle, got off in panic and started asking people about his phone. Anand, a traffic head constable attached to Whitefield Traffic Police Station, after seeing the commotion, caught the two habitual pickpockets in the bus, recovered the lost property and handed over the duo to Kadugodi police station.

Anand told Express, “I had seen these two men at the bus stop on previous occasions too and was suspicious about them. As soon as I came to know that there was a case of theft, I caught hold of one of them and recovered mobile phones. Later, I assured to release him if he revealed the whereabouts of the other person. At the same time, a man came to me saying he had seen the second thief steal a phone. I nabbed the second thief too and came to know they were accomplices. I then alerted the Hoysala squad.”
Hoysala 190 driver Kiran Kumar took the accused to the station. Police said, “The accused said they were operating in Madiwala, Whitefield and KR Puram.”
