According to a report in The Hindu, the burglar broke into a house in Guwahati's Hengerabari area while the homeowners were out.
Neighbours, however, were alarmed by his presence when he started preparing khichdi as they heard noises from the kitchen. Knowing that the owners were not home, neighbours caught the thief and handed him over to the police.
Meanwhile, Assam Police's humourous take on the attempted robbery is leaving netizens in splits. Take a look at some of the reactions:
