An incident came to light in Gujarat’s Rajkot where a group of around five jobless, penniless and starving men in Junagadh town broke into an eatery on the intervening night of May 12 and 13.
In the bizarre case, the five men left as neatly as they entered after cooking rice and potato curry in the kitchen, eating it and without stealing a single item, said cops.
According to Jitesh Tank, owner of Gajanand Parotha House in Vaibhav Chowk, at least five people entered the kitchen from the terrace. “The CCTV footage shows one man entering the kitchen, searching for something. Later he notices the CCTV and covers it,” Tank told a leading daily.
However, the eatery owner decided not to file any complaint against the break-in as nothing was stolen from his place. Tank said that on May 13 morning he got a call from the owner of an office near his eatery that the kitchen door of the eatery was open.
“On entering the kitchen, I found that there were five used plates lying around. Some kitchen utensils were also used to prepare food. They seem to have prepared some rice and potato curry,” he added.
After the unique break-in footage was uploaded on social media by the owner, the police came to know about the incident.
“A couple of constables from Junagadh B division station went to the spot and took the footage from the owner,” said Junagadh, deputy superintendent of police, Pradeepsinh Jadeja.
Jadeja said from the evidence left there, it seems around five men entered the place, cooked some food and ate it before leaving the eatery.
