Mangaluru: A video of the dramatic chase of a Mangaluru policeman to nab a mobile phone thief on Wednesday went viral on social media, with netizens praising the officer, calling him ‘Singham’.
The video shows the personnel in lightening speed, chasing the culprit, and bringing him to book, that too from a busy street in broad day light.
