A CCTV footage of a robber making funny faces while stealing an ATM card went viral last week.

The robbery actually took place last month but the police identified the thief as Salahuddin Ayubi after the video went viral.

Meanwhile, a thief came in and opened the ATM and took the card. He withdrew around 60-64k. Ayubi looked fearless as he did not cover his face.. He even made funny faces while looking directly at the camera.

The Punjab police arrested him and the video of Ayubi being interrogated also surfaced.

The police asked, “Where did you learn those tricks?”

Ayubi replied, “Where do police learn to kill?”

And ironically Salahuddin Ayubi died in police custody yesterday.

People turned to social media to express their sentiments regarding this heart wrenching incident.
