Devender Singh alias Bunty has finally got lucky. Desperately in search of a job after his release from Tihar Jail in June, he can now see his ‘‘reform wish'' coming true. Bunty,  who was lodged in the jail for his involvement in several thefts and has inspired Bollywood movie ‘Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!', has been recruited by a detective agency run by Sanjeev Deswal, who has helped police in solving many crime cases, reports Times of India. 

An enthusiastic Bunty told Times City: ‘‘I always wanted to be a detective. It's been a childhood dream that will soon be fulfilled. I will use my divya gyan to solve cases.'' But he will have to prove himself in a three-month-long training before his role reversal can take place — from criminal to a detective. 

‘‘Depending on his interest he will be assigned a role. He is not up to the mark in the technical aspects of detective work. Thus, he will be trained to use audio and video gadgets and to install spy cameras. We will share our experience with him,'' said Deswal, whose agency has earlier too benefited from the services of reformed criminals. 

On why he trusted a highprofile thief, Deswal said: ‘‘I received requests from senior police officers and some mediapersons to give Bunty a chance. We conducted his interview and spent several days going over his record to ascertain whether he was indeed acquitted in all cases. After a thorough check, we welcomed him onboard and are proud to have him in our team.'' 

Deswal believes that Singh's ability to go past security would greatly help the agency in preventing thefts. ‘‘This would help us to quickly detect areas where security needs to be strengthened,'' said Deswal.   

Singh's newfound job has also strengthened his faltering ties with his family. ‘‘My elder brother is now very proud of me. I know I will be good for this job because I know how a criminal works. This is my time to give back to society,'' said an exhilarated Bunty. 

But won't the new job dissuade him from writing the book he has planned? ‘‘I will write my book on divya-gyan and meet priests from Iskcon temple soon,'' he said confidently. ‘‘I will also not file a case against filmmaker Dibakar Banerjee because he has promised to help me. He told me that he will request the producer of the film to give me my share,'' he said.
