Mangaluru teen smuggles friend home in suitcase
MANGALURU: With Covid-19 lockdown in force and his apartment complex banning the entry of outsiders, a 17-year-old boy smuggled a male friend of his allegedly in a large suitcase in the early hours of Sunday in Mangaluru.
According to police, the PU student wanted to catch up with his classmate, and his repeated appeals for allowing his friend into the building were turned down by the apartment association. However, representatives of the association denied receiving a request from the boy.
Sources told TOI the boy stepped out of the apartment on a scooter with a huge suitcase around 2am, Sunday. He picked up his friend, who lives in a neighbouring locality, and brought him to the apartment complex. He parked the scooter outside the building and got his friend to sit inside the suitcase and dragged it into the complex.
Guards noticed something was fishy
Police said security guards noticed something unusual - a boy lugging a suitcase in the dead of the night minutes after going out on a scooter - and alerted the apartment association after daybreak. Around 8.30am, the boy and his friend stepped out for a stroll. After spotting the duo in the common area, the guards informed the association president.
The boy reportedly admitted to smuggling in the boy between 2am and 3am. This was corroborated by CCTV footage that was examined later in the day.
The building owners' association approached the police with a complaint. The parents of the boys, who were called to the police station, were shocked to learn about the incident.
City police commissioner PS Harsha said a case has been registered at Mangaluru East police station and both the boys will be produced before the Juvenile Justice Board. Sources said the boy was alone in the house on Saturday night.
市警察局长PS Harsha称，已在Mangaluru East警局立案，这两名男孩将被带到少年司法委员会。有消息称，周六晚上，这名男孩独自一人在家。

This needs to be reported as people should know that even what they think is a silly can land you in trouble. I
Most sensational news of national intrest so far!! more information is needed on the games children play.
Making a mountain our of a mole.what was necessity of police compliant, just association fellows would have called the boys parents and warned him.
Since people are staying indoors due to Covid19, they are slowly becoming insane. This is one instance of such insanity.
Is this a case for complaint?
this is funny! The police has registered a case against the boys for not following the association instruction. Ridiculous. And moreover they didn't break any law. They should be warned and let go.
What was the emergency here? Why he missed his friend so much? Or is it only the thrill of breaking rules?
what's the super big deal ?
why the boy was alone where his parents went when there is an lock down
some people have to work ...
Why he wanted his friend so desparately? wee they gays? How he managed to get that 'suitcase
female friend in need.
Juvenile Adventure. Young blood must have got enormous thrill & satisfaction in beating the system
what will be the charge before JJ board..kidnapping?
very true. Media should not be reporting this in first place
what is the point of taking such steps
This is not even case, the boys should be just warned and let off. As if we make rules to punish people
Is humanity lost? People are lonely in this difficult time.
B S B
Send the entire family to the gas chamber
Saudi Arabia would have beheaded these two boys.
Parents of the boys should be called and warned. The children are juvenile they should be warned and let off.
Sick, Ahs, kids should have been warned and let go.
Act of Juvenile must be amended .
Only Bcoz of fake news n making a hill out of a mole

This is absolutely strange stuff.
How his parents were absent from home during lock down! Also how his friend managed to defy his family and came in a suitcase while no one could noticed the Duo !!
Why the hell do thy want to stay at one place when they have cell phone to be in touch. There's a point if he has smuggled a girl. But a boy...
