DNA reports from Mumbai:

In a bizarre incident, three women suspected of stealing mobile phones, stripped to the buff on Tuesday to escape the wrath of angry people here, the police said.

The incident took place in Konkan Nagar tenements in northwest suburb of Jogeshwari around 6 am, according to Bharati Patil, a lady police constable at the Dindoshi police station.

Since then, all the young men of Konkan Nagar have been out on the streets, hoping to catch more thieves.

Ok, fine, I made that last line up. But it’s plausible, no?
