Meanwhile, a few days later the man again tried to make a call on his stolen phone and to his surprise the thief answered the call. According to reports in Hindustan Times, the thief told the man that he wanted to return his phone as he was not able to operate it.

“I was surprised when the man took the call and said he wanted to return my phone. I collected the cell phone the same day from his residence with police help. He even expressed remorse for his act,” the owner of the phone said.
