Indian Police Nab Thieves Who Dined Using Stolen Dinnerware …

New Delhi (Sputnik): The police in India’s southern city of Hyderabad were taken by surprise when two thieves were caught eating food from a golden tiffin box weighing two kilograms along with a cup, saucer and spoon studded with rubies, diamonds and emeralds, which they stole from the Nizam Museum located in Purani Haveli in the old city of Hyderabad last week. 

​”The main accused has been identified as Mohammad Ghouse Pasha, a resident of Shaheen Nagar, who has around 20 to 25 offenses registered against him. 

The second perpetrator has been identified as Mobin, who is Ghouse’s childhood friend, who was earlier convicted and jailed in Saudi Arabia. The idea to rob the museum was Mobin’s idea,” Hyderabad police told the media after cracking the unique case.

“We don’t know whether the Nizam ever used the tiffin box, but the accused said that they ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner in it,” Hyderabad’s police commissioner, Anjani Kumar, said addressing the media after arresting them.

​The stolen tiffin box, cup, saucer, and spoon belonged to the Nizam family, erstwhile rulers of Hyderabad in India. The rare collection was on display along with several other personal belongings at a museum located in Purani Haveli (meaning old palace), one of the many palaces of Nizam.

The museum is run by a private organization called the Nizam trust.
