Mangaluru: A woman has lodged a complaint with Puttur police about the theft of her purse, containing Rs. 5,000 in cash and some records.

The incident happened on a private bus travelling from Mangaluru to Puttur on Tuesday September 20. Sukanya, a Planning Ofiicer for the Puttur Taluk Panchayat, complained about the theft of her purse to the bus staff, who then checked the CCTV footage.

When Sukanya got up to exit the bus at Puttur, a woman sitting next to her was caught on camera trying to steal her phone. She stole Sukanya’s purse instead as she was unable to get her phone.

The accused, who appeared to be in her 50s, got on the bus near Kalladka and is thought to be a pickpocket gang member.
