In the letter dated November 25 the boy wrote that after leaving his bicycle at the shop on September 5, he has still not received hi repaired cycle. The police lodged his complaint and assured him that they will get his bicycle back.
Addressing the letter to the Meppayur Police Station SI, Abin wrote, “We haven’t received our cycles yet. The repair shop owner has also taken Rs. 200 as an advance for repairing our cycles. Whenever we call them, they either don’t answer or they keeping saying that they will repair the cycles soon. Whenever we went to the shop, we found it was closed.”
