There is no shortage of talented people in India but the sad part is that many times the talent is used for wrong purposes. A case has come to light in recent times which again proves this statement to be true as some thieves have done something which might have seemed simply unbelievable until it was actually done. To your utter surprise cum shock, these smart thieves stole a complete steel bridge which was 60 feet long. Yes, you read it right!

The incident took place in Rohtas, Bihar, and the thieves posed as workers sent by the irrigation department. They came fully prepared with the Earth moving machines such as JCB and gas-cutters in order to uproot the bridge.

The Junior Engineer of the irrigation dept., Arshad Kamal Shamshi stated that they were informed by the villagers that some people who portrayed themselves as mechanical dept. officials uprooted the bridge and an FIR has been filed in this connection.

However, the bridge which was constructed around 30 years ago on the Ara Sone Canal was already abandoned and the application to dismantle the bridge was already submitted by the villagers to the irrigation department. The thieves took the benefit of this information, they came posing as workers from irrigation department and easily fooled the villagers.

Subhash Kumar, the police official, states that an investigation has been initiated and the culprits who have destroyed the public property will be caught soon. He adds that they have already identified some members and the others will be tracked down soon.
