Mumbai rich youth buys laptop with stolen card for kicks
Wednesday, 9th June 2010
Wasim Sheikh, 18, defies the prototype of a young criminal. When the police caught this youth from an affluent family based in upmarket Colaba for stealing a credit card and using it to buy a laptop, they were baffled. The businessman father of Wasim had even handed over money to him to buy one. It was for the thrill of the crime, it turned out later.
Student of a prestigious college in the city, Wasim was arrested by the NM Joshi Marg police on June 4. He has admitted to stealing the credit card of Sweta Sabrawala (name changed), a civil engineer in a reputed Worli-based construction company, and then buying the laptop using it.
