Meanwhile, this incident comes after a video of two thieves trying to steal a bike surfaced on social media. Two men posed as municipal officials and tried to steal a delivery agent's bike but rammed into the gate of a colony in Delhi's Kalkaji Extension after the guard closed it just in time.
One of the men was caught by the residents immediately, while the other managed to run away, only to be later caught from a neighbouring colony, where he was hiding in a park, trying to blend in with joggers.
This incident took place on Tuesday. Area Police from Govindpuri arrived on the scene after the residents of Everest Apartments in South Delhi called the control room.
