policeman on the run

While reading online edition of Daily Times, I came across this news. I dont know why but I found it a bit on funny side.

People caught a uniformed policeman red-handed as he was escaping after snatching a man’s cellular-phone on Sunday evening. Khawaja Zaheer was buying some plants from a nursery near Qaddafi Stadium when a policeman snatched his cellular-phone and tried to escape. Zaheer and some other people ran after him but the policeman boarded a rickshaw, at which Zaheer and the other people started chasing him in another vehicle and caught him near Barkat Market. Zaheer took the policeman to the Garden Town Police Station and submitted an application for the registration of a case. A Garden Town police official confirmed the incident but refused to give the name of the policeman.

I have just one little question. Why he came up with this brilliant idea of snatching a mobile phone in UNIFORM? And why he was trying to escape by foot? Where was his chin chee partner? hmmmmm. True that our police lacks strategic planning.

But anyways, Speaking of snatching mobile phones business at Qaddafi, I have had two of my sets snatched successfully by a couple of gentlemen last year. And actually in one incident they almost took my friends daddoo (volkswagen beetle – 1975 model) too. Fortunately, it’s gear got stuck and they couldn’t take it.
