Retrieving Stolen Buffaloes by Sanjoy Dutt

This is based on a true happening somewhere in India in Jan, 2014. I hope the group will like it.

Retrieving Stolen Buffaloes by Sanjoy Dutt

A very cold and foggy January morning, time 5 AM. The district police force directed by the Superintendent was on red alert. The electronic media followed policemen combing everywhere. Nearby forests and villages.

“Terrorists?” I asked.

“Buffaloes got stolen from the minister’s barn.” A reporter replied.

Policemen refused to take on other complaints till they were retrieved. That evening the superintendent announced his efficient sleuths have recovered them all. The thieves had fled.

Reporters came to know, some villagers were waiting for the superintendent, to complain about their stolen buffaloes.

“Who stole your buffaloes?”

“The cops!” The villagers answered.
