Udupi: Two engineering students, who drove on a two-wheeler from Udupi to Kochi and stole the expensive puppy Shih Tzu from a pet shop here last week, have been nabbed by the Kerala Police from Udupi, an official said.

The incident occurred on Sunday January 29 when the two young students – Nikhil and Shreya – arrived at a popular pet shop in Panangad, Kochi. They came looking to buy a cat, and when they found that no one was attending to them while they were looking at the various pets, they picked a puppy, and put it inside a helmet, and left the shop.

The pet shop owner later realised that the students had robbed a 45-day-old puppy worth Rs. 25,000, when they checked the CCTV visuals, and subsequently informed the police.

Later after their act became news, it was found out that they did a similar act at another pet shop when they took packed food for pets.

However, while engaging in another shoplifting act, they were caught but managed to get away by paying the money.

The whole incident was reported by TV news channels and the police swung into action and traced the shoplifters and the puppy.

The police from Kochi will be bringing both Nikhil and Shreya here for the further inquest.
