How I Caught A Pickpocket Essay
I cannot say exactly whether he caught me or I caught him but I was called the hero of the day. It all happened when I was travelling in a local bus. It was packed to capacity. Some commuters were virtually hanging on the rails. I was trying to move forward to stand in a comfortable place. Suddenly, I saw a man putting his hands in the back pocket of another passenger.
At first, I grew nervous but the next moment, I alerted the passengers. They caught him red-handed. He struggled hard to get away from them. He showed his empty hands to plead innocence. I refuted him loudly and told everyone that I had seen him putting his hands in the back pocket of the other passenger. The pickpocket caught me by the collar and challenged me to prove it. I struggled hard to get myself free but his grip was very tight. Some passengers spoke in my favour and called him a liar.
In the meanwhile, the driver changed the route and took the bus to the police station. I cursed my foolishness because that hefty man had started dragging me. I was in tears and sought help from other passengers.
The bus reached the police station. The smart policemen put a cordon round the bus. The driver reported the whole matter to the police. The sub-inspector caught hold of the pickpocket and took him to the investigation room. I sat in the reporting room. The police checked the record and found out that he was the most notorious pickpocket of the area. He confessed to many other crimes also.
The policemen offered me a glass of water. I washed my face and relaxed. Next day, my name was published in all the newspapers for the remarkable bravery I had shown in nabbing an anti-social element.
