Ok, this one has Jamaluddin Sheikh written all over it. It’s a howler!
Will someone tell this guy, that the Intelligence Bureau (IB) need not always be manned by ‘Intelligent’ people. And that because the bureau’s brief is to collect intelligence, you still can’t call it the ‘Intelligent Bureau’.
And the 'Intelligent Bureau' is a Central Government outfit independent of the state police department.
This makes for such a hilarious goof up. Read the para in bold.

And judging by way crime reporters -- Jamal here included – have gone about this story, looks like they've missed the point altogether.
Penpricks wagers a bet, that for the seven motorcycles stolen from the jurisdiction of the Panaji police station, no FIRs have been registered.
What has probably happened, are two rounds of tea-biscuit at Panaji Police Inspector Serafin Dias’ cabin and a lot of backslapping. The first round, after the thefts were discovered and the other, once the thieves returned the motor-cycles to the town police.
