Three Bihar school students, who thought up a hare-brained scheme to earn a huge amount of cash as reward if they could catch gangster Dawood Ibrahim, have returned home chastened after running out of money.

The three class 9 students ran away from school last Saturday with the dream of leading a life of luxury with the reward money for catching Ibrahim, Senior Superintendent of Police Manu Maharaj said today.

Quoting the accounts of the three, the SSP said they first went to Mokama in Patna district and from there reached Kolkata.

"In Kolkata they somehow realised that the idea was impractical after running out of money and returned home," Maharaj said.

The parents of the three school boys had registered a missing complaint with the Digha police station.

Station House Officer of Digha police station Manoj Jha said that the students narrated that they had read a lot about the international fugitive on the internet and thought of leading a luxurious life with the reward money after giving up studies.
