During interrogation, the accused said he was unaware that someone was recording the video of his act.

A video of this incident went viral on social media on Tuesday, in which two people were seen stealing pots. It is seen in the video that two people stopped, stole flower pots and fled.

A case under various sections of the IPC has been registered against the culprits at the DLF Phase-3 police station.
