Jharsuguda: A youth has been detained for allegedly attempting theft hiding inside the drain. However, whether he was committing the crime, is yet to be ascertained, Police said.

As per the sources, Since evening some shop owner heard some noise inside the drain next to their shop on the main road, Near Old Railway Malgodown. When they checked they saw someone inside the drain at a distance. From that instance, local shopkeeper along with several others had poured in numbers and gathered trying to take him out. But being adamant he had kept himself hidden inside the drain itself.

Dramatically, when people pushed something from one side he ran and shuffled his place inside the drain and kept crawling inside the drain for few metres. This drama kept on going for several hours.

Jharsuguda Police had tried their hard to rescue him by asking him to hand over him to them but after hearing the noise of the public he refused to come out. 

But finally, Jharsuguda Town Police and along with the locals, they finally managed to nab him after he was trapped inside the drain from both sides.

He was dramatically rescued by the police and taken to the custody.

More Detail Report would be posted tomorrow.
