The first victim said that he had gone to the mosque to perform the Fajr prayers and found his phone was missing when he came back. The other one said that he had left his phone charging and then saw that it was stolen.


According to the case file, when the police interrogated him, the accused admitted to entering his colleagues' room to steal their phones.
