In a thrilling moment caught on cam, a Mangaluru cop nabbed a mobile thief after a long cinematic chase, and was later awarded Rs. 10,000 by the Mangaluru city police commissioner. The quick as lightning police officer was identified as Assistant Sub-Inspector Varun Alva, who works for the Mangaluru city police. The accused was identified as 32-year-old Harish Poojary from Neermarga. The entire chase looked something to have come out of a Rajinikanth blockbuster.
