Their love for selfies landed two goons behind bars after they stole a woman's mobile phone at gunpoint in Karachi, Pakistan. They took selfies on the stolen phone which got automatically uploaded on the victim's Google account, making it an easy task for police to nab them.   
The two accused, Nadeem and Majid, robbed a woman named, Erum Altaf, in Karachi's Defence Housing Authority Phase VI on December 27. The woman lodged a complaint with Darakhshan police two days after the theft. Less than a week after filing police complaint, the two accused took selfies on the stolen mobile phone not anticipating this might land them in trouble. The selfies which got automatically uploaded to the woman's Google account helped police in tracking down the two men. 
Police sought help of National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) and the suspects' identities were confirmed through a cross-match with Nadra records. Darakhshan police arrested the accused and found the stolen phone and two illegal weapons in their possession.
Criminal proceedings have been initiated against the suspects, according to reports in Tribune.
