According to The Hindu, the thief broke into a house in Guwahati's Hengerabari area while the homeowners were away. Neighbours, however, were alerted to his presence when he started cooking khichdi and they heard noises from the kitchen. Knowing that the homeowners were away, neighbours caught the burglar and handed him over to the cops.
Meanwhile, Assam Police's humourous take on the attempted robbery has amused many. Take a look at some of the reactions:

Something similar happened in 2017 when a burglar broke into a restaurant in the US and stopped searching for money long enough to cook himself a meal. The man helped himself to five steak sandwiches, fries and some soda before making his escape.Click for more trending news
