An attempted motorbike theft ended with two teens literally hitting the road on Sunday, after village vigilantes stopped the thieves mid-deed and kicked them off the stolen vehicle.

According to police, a grocer parked his bike outside his market stall and ducked into his home. Several minutes later, the perps, aged 17 and 18, broke the bike’s lock and made off with the vehicle.
