Women files plaint over missing chickens, cops say she didn't rear any chickens

In a bizarre case, an elderly woman in her late sixties approached the additional commissioner of police (east) zone to file a complaint against her neighbour whom she suspected to have stolen her chickens in Byappanahalli.

The jurisdictional police questioned around 30 of Lakshmamma's neighbours. However, they found that she did not own any chickens.

"Around a couple of years ago, she was rearing pigeons, but there was no evidence of her owning any chickens, the entire neighbourhood tells" a senior police officer said.

The complainant had stated that around 25 chickens were stolen.

On further inquiries, it was revealed that the woman's dispute was over an incident that had happened in 2011.

Lakshmamma's neighbours had then filed a complaint with Byappanahalli police stating that a gold chain was missing from their house in Old Byappanahalli.

Even before an FIR was registered, the police conducted enquiries and the chain was recovered from Lakshmamma's house which was later returned to the owner.

Lakshmamma felt insulted after the incident and waited for an opportunity to take revenge on her neighbour, who were friends of her son Srinivas, the police said.

In a span of two months, Lakshmamma filed four to five complaints with the Byappanahalli police stating that her chicken were stolen. But after enquires, the police learnt those were fake complaints and did not register any FIR.

She then approached Seemanth Kumar Singh, Additional Commissioner of Police East Zone, on Monday and submitted a complaint. Singh then ordered an inquiry.
