VASHI: The po­lice were left flum­moxed on Wed­nes­day when they ar­rested a per­son for al­legedly steal­ing money from a woman, and the ac­cused later turned out to be her hus­band. Deputy com­mis­sioner of po­lice (crime), Suresh Mengde, who was pass­ing through MGM Hos­pi­tal area in Vashi on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon, stopped his ve­hi­cle af­ter hear­ing a woman scream.

She said she had been robbed. Mengde asked po­lice per­son­nel ac­com­pa­ny­ing him to rush to­wards the di­rec­tion pointed out by the woman and nab the ac­cused.

Af­ter a brief chase, the po­lice caught the man along with the stolen money. The po­lice were sur­prised to find that the man was her hus­band.

The woman in­formed the po­lice that she had a fall out with her hus­band over some is­sue. Hence, he had snatched money from her and fled.

“I was left with no op­tion but to scream to get my money back,” she told the po­lice.

How­ever, later she ap­pealed to the po­lice to let her hus­band go. The is­sue was re­solved at the Vashi po­lice sta­tion.
