Phone theft in India is a common crime that is not unheard of. The most obvious steps after a theft are to block the SIM card, report the incident to the authorities, try to track the device, etc. Now imagine a situation where the thief who grabbed the phone returns it himself, sounds confusing, right ?. This bizarre but funny incident that befell a Twitter user Debayan Roy could leave you in a split second. Keep reading.
Make history, Debayan tweeted that while texting on his Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus at Sector 52 Noida subway station, a man in a black mask grabbed the phone and ran away. In an impulsive move, the Twitter user ran behind the masked man in an attempt to retrieve his phone. Until then, the whole incident feels like a story we might have heard on various occasions. However, what happened next is the funniest part. As he ran towards the thief, Debayan said the thief turned and ran towards him instead of trying to flee the scene. As he approached Roy, the thief said, “Bhai Mujhe Laga One Plus 9 pro model hai” (Brother, I thought it was the OnePlus 9 Pro model) and dropped the device on the ground and ran away again.
This means that the thief ripped off the phone thinking it was the last OnePlus 9 Pro, but after posting it isn’t, he comes back and returns the phone to the rightful owner. The comments on the tweet were also hilarious. Some are relieved that their phones are not worthy targets for phone thieves. Some users have asked if Debayan Roy was relieved to have his phone back or if he was offended that the thief was not interested in his phone.
