Thief steals businessman's phone, returns it by courier later

When the CCTV footage was checked it was observed that a man, who was sitting next to the businessman, did call out to give the phone but he quietly switched it off and kept it inside his bag.

Losing a phone is a terrible experience. More than the cost burden, the shock of losing valuable data, contacts and images leaves the affected helpless and looking for answers. However, when a Delhi-based businessman went through a similar experience he was lucky not to go through the agony and was left relieved at the end of it all.

The businessman, who was at the Medicity Medanta Hospital in Gurgaon for his father’s surgery, noticed that his phone was lifted from the cafeteria of the hospital.

As per a report by Mail Today, he forgot to pick the phone up while shifting to another table in the cafeteria.

"When I went back to the table a few minutes later, it was no longer there. I then called on my number from my brother's phone and found it switched off. I knew that very instant I had lost my new phone," as quoted in the report.

When the CCTV footage was checked it was observed that a man, who was sitting next to the businessman, did call out to give the phone but he quietly switched it off and kept it inside his bag.

Later, the man left the city and was traced in Varanasi after the hospital’s security team tracked him after six hours.

The hospital’s security team’s AVP, Bireshwar Tyagi said that they asked him to return the phone either in person or through a courier.

Within a week, the thief obliged and sent back the phone by courier to the businessman.

Tyagi informed, as per the report, the usual reply in such cases is that they were distressed and did not realize they had taken someone else’s stuff.
