Catching a thief...
... is surely its own reward. Mid Day reports:
Last month, Leena D'Cunha (24) jumped out of a moving train to nab a thief, fell on the tracks and seriously injured herself.Right. But D'Cunha was surely not thinking of the felicitation when she jumped out of the train, and the purpose she had was served, because the fellow got caught, and she got her mobile phone back. So why the big deal about the felicitation?
Even as she was losing consciousness, she shouted out to passers-by to catch the thief, which finally led to his capture.
A month later, says an indignant D'Cunha, she found that the police had refused to recognise her act of bravery and instead were felicitating the boy, Pankaj Patil (21), who actually grabbed the thief.
