Police inspector S Bhuvaneshwari showed empathy towards the boy after hearing his need for a smartphone in order to continue with his education.

A 13-year-old domestic help’s son was caught after stealing a smartphone in Chennai. The police inspector left him with the warning and a new smartphone as a gift for herself so that the child can continue his online classes as his purpose behind the theft was to attend his online classes.

His parents reportedly couldn`t afford a smartphone as his father works at a biscuit shop and this pushed the school student to embark on theft.

According to the police, the boy came under the company of two boys from the same impoverished neighborhood. The duo used the teenager as a bait to steal a mobile phone. After seeing him loitering around during school hours, they decided to lure him with the idea of a smartphone so that he no more had to miss out on his online classes.

Three of them then managed to steal the mobile phone of a truck driver in Thiruvottiyur and eventually all three of them were caught.

However, police inspector S Bhuvaneshwari showed empathy towards the boy after hearing his need for a smartphone in order to continue with his education.

Bhuvaneshwari immediately decided to buy the boy a smartphone with the money she had set aside to buy a phone for her own daughter.

“This is a small gesture from my side. After hearing his tale, I thought penalizing him would turn the life of the misguided youth upside down,” the inspector said.
