A few minutes later, he came back and returned the mobile but asked Rayan to

give him the smart watch and told them to collect it at the police booth near

When the two youths went to collect the watch at the booth, the policeman was

not there. They later went to Otteri police station and informed them about the

policeman’s act.

Based on an oral complaint, the Otteri police found the policeman who took the

smart watch to be M. Vimal (29) of Pulianthope police quarters. The police

he did not attend. After a case was filed, City Police Commissioner Sandeep
