Policemen in Nagpur found themselves in a strange situation when a youth approached them with a complaint to find his "stolen" heart. The incident took place recently in one of the police stations in Nagpur, a senior official said.
The youth wanted to file a complaint stating that a girl has "stolen" his heart and requested the policemen to get it back.
While the police personnel often get complaints about stolen goods, this unusual case put the police station in-charge in a fix resulting in the officer to consult his superiors for advice in dealing with the matter.
After discussing the matter with his superior over the issue in an informal manner, the conclusion came in stating that there is no section under Indian laws that deals with such a complaint.
Finally, the policemen had to tell the youth that they don't have a solution to his problem and turned him away.
This bizarre incident was shared by Nagpur Police Commissioner Bhushan Kumar Upadhyay last week during a programme where the police department returned stolen articles worth Rs 82 lakh to their respective owners.
Interacting with the media, Bhushan Kumar Upadhyay, in a lighter note,, said, "We can return stolen articles, but sometimes we also get such complaints which even we cannot solve.
This is not the first time when police had to deal with unusual cases wherein they were approched by the people to find the most unexpected things that got lost or stolen. From stolen jackfruits to missing parrots and bulbs, the police of India have investigated some of the most bizarre cases.
