Chain-snatcher duo targets two women in two hours

Two unidentified men are suspected to have snatched the gold chains of two women in just two hours in different localities on Thursday afternoon, the police said. 

In the first incident, Subashini, 38, a homemaker from Kala Nagar in Kammagondanahalli, lost her 20-gram gold chain when the miscreants targeted her around 1.30 pm.

The woman told the police that she was walking to buy vegetables when the men drove up a bike behind her, snatched her chain and just sped off, the Gangammanagudi police said. 

30-gm gold chain lost

In the second incident, Ramya, a 29-year-old homemaker from 17th Cross, Banashankari II Stage, was on her way to dropping her son at his tuition class when the chain-snatchers targeted her in similar fashion around 3.30 pm. 

Ramya said that she lost her 30-gram gold chain. According to her, she did raise
an alarm, but the miscreants just disappeared. They rode a black motorcycle. 

Police suspect that two men are involved in both the incidents. “It is suspected that the same miscreants have committed both the offences within a span of two hours.

A wireless message was sent across and nakabandis were set up in the surrounding areas. The checking is still going on,” a senior officer said on the condition of anonymity.
