In an absolutely bizarre news from Maharashtra, a thief was caught on camera after he took God’s blessings by touching the idol’s feet before stealing donation box from a temple. However, the blessings didn’t quite work out for him as he was later arrested by the Naupada police station. Reportedly, the burglar took to a Lord Hanuman temple to make a quick buck by stealing the donation box from the temple. According to reports, the donation box was carrying a sum of Rs. 1,000.

Later, the police used the CCTV footage to make inquiries and nab the suspects. The accused has been identified as 18-year-old Kejas and he also had an accomplice, Suraj, who is 21-years-old.
