Police recovered 1.16 lakh eggs, rest were sold

Was the accused inspired by Teja from 'Andaz Apna Apna'?
On a lighter note, the whole incident is similar to the dream of Andaz Apna Apna's Shyam Gopal Bajaj a.k.a 'mahapurush' Teja, who wanted to own a poultry farm.
"Laakhon andon se karodon murgiyaan... aur unke kayi karodo ande," he had said. Remember?
Nevertheless, like every other Bollywood slapstick comedy, the villain was finally caught and the Teja, in this story too, couldn't make his mark.
