Last month while robbing an ATM in Faisalabad, Salahuddin showed his tongue out at the CCTV camera. His cheeky act went viral on social media, but later police arrested him on August 30, he died in police custody on Sunday September 1st.
An inquiry into his death has also been ordered by the District Police Officer with the cause of his death to be announced following a postmortem.
Salahuddin had garnered online attention after a video of him made rounds on the internet as he stole from an ATM machine in Faisalabad while sticking his tongue out at the camera during the process.
He was recognized a month later by security officials at an ATM in Rahim Yar Khan where he was attempting to repeat the criminal act.
