A man broke into a roadside food joint in Maharashtra’s Yavatmal district on the night of May 27 to eat food as the COVID-19 lockdown had left him famished. Even as the hungry man stole Rs 200 after eating food, the owner of the food joint refused to file a complaint with the police against the man.

The incident took place at a ‘Zhunka Bhakar’ joint at Yavatmal’s Gandhi Chowk. Speaking to PTI an official said, “The man finished off the food inside and then walked away with the money. The CCTV footage shows him breaking the door of the stall, going to the kitchen, eating zhunka bhakri and sev bhaji from the utensils and walking off with Rs 200 from the cash counter.”

Rajesh Mor, the owner of the food joint, told PTI that he did not file a complaint since the man was hungry and the amount of money he stole was not a big one.
