It is true that it is not possible to be without sleep for a long time. A case related to a drug addict — who was out on a mission to steal a van — and his sleep came to light in Faridabad. The suspect who had come to commit the robbery fell asleep while stealing the vehicle. In the morning, he had to be woken up by the police.

Was in intoxicated condition

  • A police officer said the suspect revealed during questioning that his name was Dalip (26) and he was a resident of Kalyanpuri in Delhi
  • He said he had come to steal the van and had even broken the side lock of the vehicle. The car also had a gear lock and while trying to break it in an intoxicated state, he fell asleep, he added

An FIR has been registered against the alleged vehicle-lifter at the SGM Nagar police station. He was produced in a city court today and sent to judicial custody.

According to the police, Ravi, a resident of NIT 3 area of Faridabad, used to work as the driver of a school van. On returning from duty, he had parked the van at Kalyanpuri Chowk near his house on Tuesday night. When he went to clean his van the next morning, he saw that the side lock of the vehicle was broken. He was shocked to see an unidentified man lying in an unconscious state inside the van.

He called the police but the man continued sleeping without any fear. Finally, he was woken up by the police and arrested. Drugs were also recovered from his possession.
