“Stopped To Paani Puri…” Err…

Seriously guys! PROOF the content before publishing it.

With that out of the way, let’s examine the case itself:

  • The CA in question forgot the keys in the ignition.
  • Someone noticed the keys and tried his luck with the glove box.
  • All this happened on a day when he had INR 500,000 in the glove box.
  • Investigators suspect an organised gang and suggest that somebody with prior knowledge about the cash was following the CA and capitalised when the opportunity presented itself.

While all of the above events seem plausible, the likelihood of all of the events occurring simultaneously is... well... let’s just say it is possible, just not highly probable (and extremely unfortunate).

Point 1 – Let us rubbish the suggestions of the investigators. Organised gangs do NOT wait for the mark to ‘STOP TO PAANI PURI’. Hit-Snatch-Run would be a more likely approach. Especially if they had information that the individual was carrying cash.

Point 2 - Any individual (with criminal intent / leanings) who encounters keys in the ignition is more likely to ride away with the scooter, as opposed to attempt to unlock the glove box and expect to get lucky. UNLESS the individual had prior information, in which case… refer to Point 1.

Point 3 – A more plausible, probable and simple explanation exists. The CA in question has orchestrated the incident. Even if CCTV footage is found of another individual opening the glove box, reasonable doubt still exists about collusion.

I am not an investigator. My conclusions may be far from the actual account of events (I am just bored). That said, the above conclusion is the only logical deduction (based on the information provided in the article) that actually fits.

Everything else… although plausible and possible; is highly improbable.
