A man who allegedly stole glasses from a police station in Delhi on his birthday has lost his case against the Delhi Police.
In August, a Delhi court had directed the Delhi government to file a compensation claim for the glasses of Suman Kaur, a man who was arrested by the Delhi police on August 25, 2015.
Suman Kappan, 38, who works in the IT sector, said he had given the glasses to his daughter-in-law, who has special needs.
The glasses were stolen when Kaur was allegedly caught by the police during an arrest operation.
According to the complaint, Suman used the glasses for his birthday party and his son-in, Anil, said they were also taken during the party.
On Monday, the Delhi High Court rejected the compensation claim, saying it was an unlawful act of the police.
The court had said that the glasses belonged to Kappans son-son who is an employee of the Delhi Government.
Kappans daughter-son had filed a police complaint in December, 2015 against the police on the basis of which the case was registered.
The Delhi Police had alleged that the complainant was a woman and had been living with Suman in the city.
Suman had allegedly threatened the complainant with dire consequences if she told the police anything that was not in the public interest.
