Kochi police arrested two students from Udupi for allegedly shoplifting a puppy from a pet shop in Kerala.
The arrested Nikhil and Shreya had been caught red-handed while indulging in a similar shoplifting act in the past but managed to get away after they paid the money.
On Sunday, Nikhil and Shreya arrived at the pet shop on a two-wheeler looking to buy a cat. Later as they noticed no one was attending to them while they were looking at the various pets, they picked a puppy, and put it inside a helmet and left the shop.
