Heroic act by Auto driver helps catch thieves running with school teacher’s bag

There are hardly very few people in this world who care about others as they think only about themselves most of the times. There is nothing wrong with it. But during an emergency situation, the same people would step up to help you, no matter what. This is what that has been happening so far.

Auto driver’s heroics helped catch the thieves who were running away with school teacher’s handbag. Here is one real-life story that needs to be told! We all know that most of the robberies would happen at night time. The robbers usually take advantage of the situation when there are only very few people wandering at the street.

A 37-year-old rickshaw driver, G Suresh Kumar, after completing safaris was happily returning home at around 9 pm. But little did he know that something strange would happen as he heard the screams of a woman calling for help.

Suresh Kumar further saw three people on a bike snatching school teacher’s handbag and escaping away from the spot as she sat on the side of another rickshaw. Seeing this, Suresh Kumar sprung into action at the drop of the hat whose rickshaw was right behind the woman’s vehicle.

The auto driver chased the thieves and banged his rickshaw into the robbers’ two-wheeler, a sudden impact caused the two-wheeler to collapse at the spot, resulting in all of them falling on the road.

The unknown person who happened to see this by chance understood what went wrong and immediately managed to catch the two people while one managed to escape from the spot. Those two robbers were young aged 20 and 21, from KK Nagar and MGR Nagar, were then taken to the Egmore Police and their bike was seized too. After further investigation at the station, the policemen were able to capture the escaped one too who was also a youth.

S Mariamanonmani, who is a government school teacher by trait, hails from Tiruvannamalai. She travelled to Chennai to visit her relatives and was returning in an auto after shopping with her family in Purasawalkam. As her auto-rickshaw reached Nair Bridge destination around 9 pm, a suspicious trio on a bike stole her handbag. The bag had money, her mobile phone, Aadhaar and debit cards, as reported by The Hindu.

The autorickshaw driver Suresh Kumar was then invited to the office of Police Commissioner A K Viswanathan, where he was praised for his supreme actions and conferred a reward.

The Youth salutes Suresh Kumar for leaping into action in retaining the school teacher’s handbag and also nabbed the thieves at the right time.
