On October 9, Uttar Pradesh police acted against a group of four motorcycle thieves who were related in a robbery of more than a hundred bikes since 2017. Following their capture, the cheats, every one of whom is undergraduate of an administration school in the state, told police authorities that they stole the bikes with the goal of selling them to buyers to utilise the money to amaze their ‘girlfriends’, reported Times Now.
Uttar Pradesh police branch on Tuesday arrested the three students at the Bhavnipur convergence close to the Railway crossing in Varanasi which is under the purview of the Shivpur police headquarters on October 6. A report by Dainik Jagran attests that the young students were attempting to trade various stolen bikes when they were seized.
The arrested students have been recognised as Shivam Singh, Akhilesh Yadav, Karan Singh Beiru and Sujit Kumar Singh. Revealing insight into the task that prompted the arrest, Senior Superintendent of police (SSP) Anand Kulkarni said this was a joint activity by the Shivpur police station and the Cantt police station which acted in the wake of getting a tip about the posse of bicycle criminals from a source. The policeman additionally said that while one of the individuals is a first-year student of B.Sc Agriculture, the others are live in the hostel.
In the meantime, in the chase for this group, police authorities likewise recuperated 19 stolen bikes.
While interrogating, the young students admitted to trading stolen bikes so they could purchase plane tickets for their girlfriends and themselves. They have already taken trips to Delhi, Mumbai and different cities with their girlfriends while staying in lavish five-star hotels. With the money, they have also gifted expensive clothes and accessories to their girlfriends, the police said
The Logical Indian take
Love and romance is a separate issue from stealing. A person should not steal just to impress their girlfriends. Stealing is a serious criminal offence and is punishable by law. A person should not get so engulfed with the idea of romance and impressing their girlfriends that they end up in prison. There are more ways to express love to someone. Movies have trivialised the idea of romance and reduced it to the mere act of giving and receiving expensive gifts but that is not entirely true.
These students, who don’t know any better, might have thought that money was the only way an individual can be romantic. This idea needs to change. We hope the future generation is given a more realistic idea of love and romance.
