Varanasi: In a shockingly bizarre incident, a burglar died after he got stuck in a door while trying to break into a power loom centre with the intention of stealing.
The incident took place on Monday morning in Daniyalpur of Sarnath area of Varanasi.
The deceased has been identified as Javed, 30, who was actively involved in other theft cases.
According to police reports, the power loom centre that belonged to a man named Nizam had been closed for the past two days due to a shortage of work.
