I read news that a precious diamond necklace was stolen from an Indian jewellery stall during an India Show in Lahore. Later the Punjab Police and Crimes Investigation Agency (CIA) recovered the necklace from a professional pickpocket. According to police the suspect was caught from the information of their secret network of information as CCTV footages and witness accounts hardly helped the investigators in tracing the suspect. That the suspect was caught by police show that if police wants to catch culprits it can easily do this and they don’t need even technology like CCTV.
