In today’s world, mobile phone addiction is an alarming issue. We seldom realize how much we use our phones on a daily basis. But what happens when your phone is stolen? You’ll be forced to live without the addictive device for some time. Sounds challenging, doesn’t it?

Recently, almost 185 mobile phone handsets were stolen from a storeroom at a police station in Maharashtra’s Kolhapur district. The incident occurred at the Jaysingpur police station, around 38 km from Kolhapur in western Maharashtra, reports Times of India.

The mobile phones were seized by the police in various cases of theft. They were recovered by the detection unit and kept in a special room.

“We have a room on the police station premises where all the seized properties in theft or other cases are stored. On Thursday night, unidentified persons broke into the room and decamped with as many as 185 mobile handsets,” an official was quoted saying by The New Indian Express.

The police station didn’t have CCTV cameras at the back gates and the burglars took advantage of this and escaped easily. “The investigation is on and we have positive leads in the case,” police inspector Datta Borigidde of Jaysingpur police station was quoted saying by the Hindustan Times. A case has now been registered.

We hope the cops are able to catch the culprits soon.
