The locals in Guwahati’s Downtown area on Sunday nabbed a bike-lifter red-handed and thrashed him in full public view. Later he was handed over to police.
Identified as Bubu Konwar, the bike-lifter has earlier records of involvement in stealing cases. On arresting Konwar, the police found out that he had been arrested for robbery some months ago and sentenced to jail.
“We have arrested Konwar on the charge of robbery and will present him before the court. We will also attach his history with the charge sheet so that he gets a longer jail term,” said a police officer.
