A cop's house in Bhind city of Madhya Pradesh, India was recently burgled. Surprisingly, the thief left an apology note saying that he will return the money that he had stolen to save a friend's life.

Assistant sub-inspector (ASI) Kamlesh Katare of Kotwali police station said that the incident happened at the home of a policeman who works in Chhattisgarh, while his family lives in Bhind city. The policeman’s wife and children were at a relative’s house on June 30. When they got back on Monday, they found the locks in their house broken, and things scattered, reported News18.

In the letter, the thief said, “Sorry Dost majboori thi (Sorry friend, it was a compulsion). If I had not done this, then my friend would have lost his life. Don’t worry, as soon as I get the money, I will return it."

The police said that silver and gold ornaments were missing. On the basis of the note, police suspect some acquaintance of the family to be involved in the crime. A case has been registered regarding the theft. Further investigation is ongoing.

In another theft case in April, a thief stole 1,710 Covid-19 vaccine doses from a hospital in Haryana’s Jind town, but left it at a tea stall hours later with an apology letter, reported Hindustan Times.

Jind deputy superintendent of police (DSP) Jitender Katkar said that a man gave a sealed packet to an old person sitting at a tea stall near the Civil lines police station. “The thief told the old man to hand over the packet to a police personnel and said that there is food inside the packet. When the old man brought the packet, the cops found doses inside it. Then, we called the doctors and they checked all vials. No vaccines were found missing,” he said.

Inside the packet, there was also a note. “The thief had written ‘sorry- I did not know it was corona vaccine,'” the DSP added. The packet had 440 doses of Covaxin and 1,270 of Covishield. Civil surgeon Dr Manjeet Singh said that it seemed like the thieves wanted to steal Remdesivir, the medicine to treat Covid-19, but took away the vaccines.
