An unidentified gang stole a lift concrete plating machine which was kept at the Suleswaranpatti Town Panchayat Office premises near Pollachi a few days ago.
The police had registered a case based on a complaint lodged by contractor Naveen Kumar at the Pollachi East Police Station and were looking for the culprit.
In this situation, while conducting a vehicle inspection in that area on Sunday, Nagarajan, a resident of Natham area in Dindigul district, was caught and interrogated. It was revealed that he was the one who stole the machine. He was subsequently jailed by police who filed a case against him.
