When she tried to leave the place, it triggered the supermarket’s anti-theft antenna, causing an employee and security guard to bar her escape.

When the staff ordered Khalimahtul to re-enter the premise, the anti-theft antenna sounded off again, leading the staff to report the incident to the head of security.
