An hour long interrogation of the members of the household let the team of investigators to conclude that the device was last seen about an hour before the disappearance was reported. They also believed that both the remote and the thief were still in the vicinity of the bungalow, and soon took no time to find the missing object under the couch.

While the police were on their way, he used an app on his son’s Galaxy mobile to operate the television, which he found very confusing. Thankfully, they arrived before he was troubled too much.”

The police has registered a case, but nobody, not even the MP knows how the remote got there in the first place. It still remains a mystery.
