A video grab shows an interaction between the robbers and the victim.
Karachiites have now something to brag about other than the punishing lockdown due to coronavirus that makes them feel like prisoners.
Pakistan’s social media has been abuzz with a video of an attempted robbery that turned into a touching charitable act.
A video has been doing the rounds of the two young robbers.
A CCTV footage showed a food deliveryman finishing his delivery and moving towards his bike for the next assignment.
Then two men on a bike confront the man and hold him at gunpoint.
One of them takes away all his belongings and is planning to run away.
The CCTV footage shows an interaction between the robbers and the deliveryman, which prompt them to return all his values.
The deliveryman appears to be in tears, and the robbers are seen consoling him.
A frame also shows the robbers hugging and shaking the man’s hand as they leave the would-have-been crime scene.
The food deliveryman then takes his ride and vanishes from the scene.
Netizens took turns to express their views on the incident.
