The crime rates in Hyderabad have slowly started to take an upward trend as police and law enforcement are completely busy maintaining vigilance due to the ongoing lockdown and the daily tensions revolving around it. With that being said, burglars see this as an opportunity and doing whatever they have been planning to do. These burglars are targetting quiet residential areas in the city and temples located within housing societies.
In a bizarre incident, a 21-year-old intermediate dropout boy from Nizamabad who lived in a hostel at Chikkadpally was a medical aspirant. He was trying his luck at entrance exams and other exams. However, after lots of work and praying, the boy understood that God in heaven did not bless him enough with money nor the opportunity to become a doctor. At this moment, he decided to become a burglar and chose the road to crime. The boy amusingly made a promise to God that he would return all the money that he robs the day he makes his own fortune.
Ever since he started being a burglar, he has robbed more than eight temples and is involved in other thefts at homes and shops. The money that he won was all spent on betting and few other illegal activities. He was named as a possible suspect after the robbery at Ganesh Temple near Secunderabad Station. The police searched for ten days and arrested him in the early hours of Sunday. He is questioned about the details of all his thefts.
