Burqa-clad woman’s shoplifting act in Hindu-owned garment shop caught on CCTV: Mangaluru

A video of a burqa-clad woman shoplifting clothes from a retail store in Mangaluru, Karnataka has gone viral on social media.

The incident took place at Sandhya Textiles store in Kavoor area of the coastal town on September 26. The unidentified woman, who had visited the store in the guise of shopping, manages to steal clothes while diverting the saleswoman’s attention and hid the same under her burqa, reports Udayavani.

This act was caught on the CCTV camera installed in the shop. The shopowner has filed a case in this regard at Kavoor police station.

Such acts by burqa-clad thieves are quite common, and they seem to exclusively target non-Muslim stores. Here are some more cases –
