The citizens of the port city expressed concern, who are already dealing with street crimes, robberies and other forms of crimes on regular basis, over this new type of theft.

Many blamed the rising price of edible oil and ghee for the reason behind such acts. They further said that such crimes should be an eye-opener for the rulers to take measures to control the rising inflation in the country.
