In the video which is doing the rounds on social media, Sub-Inspector Antlin Ramesh can be seen chasing two bike-borne mobile phone snatchers. While one of them managed to run away, the other one tried to escape on the bike. Ramesh threw his own bike and caught hold of the escaping thief and also fell down in the process. Nevertheless, he regained balance and held on to the snatcher.

Tweeting a CCTV video of Ramesh catching the thief, Aggarwal said: “It’s not a scene from any movie. But the real life hero SI Antiln Ramesh single-handedly chasing and catching a mobile snatcher riding a stolen bike. Follow up led to arrest of three more accused and recovery of 11 snatched/stolen mobiles.”
