"Atique, Khursheed and Sajjad were friends and that they had entered the gutter on the fateful day of Holi to steal the wire of Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL). As they were in the process of stealing the wire, both Khursheed and Sajjad turned unconscious and thus, Atique closed the cover out of fear and did not inform the police. Later, he fled from the spot. (ANI)
