One of my friend has shared a message in his social networking profile page that after his return from tour his house was cleaned spic and span by burglars. Added to the woes when he did a background check with the local chor bazaar, some of the things that has been burgled at his house had been sold at dirt cheap rates.

The most unfortunate thing is that police were refusing to register even a Community Service Register (CSR) incident leave alone a FIR. While the Greater Chennai police advertise that to register our trip visits to the police station, such not-so-stray incidents make us apprehend that registering our trips is a sure invitation to burglars because local conmen have more closer relationship and rapport with the unscrupulous cops.

I can recall a few incidents in metropolitan limits also.

  1. When several years back, MTC Bus crew handed over a pocket picker to Vadapalani police station the then inspector instead of filing a complaint was giving certificate to the accused like ‘These people are very good. Why are you guys insisting on filing pocket picking complaint on them?’
