BANGALORE: A techie’s precautionary measures and a head constable’s immediate action, foiled a theft attempt at a flat in Royal Residency Apartment in RR Layout in Hulimavu police station limits in the wee hours of Wednesday.
According to the police, Suresh, a software engineer, had gone to the US with his family. Before leaving, he had installed a burglar alarm in the house. In the wee hours of Wednesday, some miscreants tried to break into his house and the alarm alerted Suresh.

“Gowda swung into action and noticed that around five persons were trying to break into Suresh’s residence. He shot two rounds in the air, that scared miscreants away,” police said.
