Gang flees with woman's chain after making her swoon

Four unidentified men robbed a homemaker of her gold chain in front of her house in Peenya. The incident occurred around 11 am when the victim, Ratna, a resident of Nelagedaranahalli, was standing outside her house.

The suspects came in a car and stopped it right in front of her. Two women and two men got down from the car and struck up a conversation with her. They were pretending to ask for the location of a house in the area. When she was pointing out the directions, the suspects threw some white powder on her face.

Ratna fell down and became unconscious. “She regained consciousness after a while and realised that the gold chain was missing. She approached the police and lodged a complaint,”said a police officer.

The suspects were aged between 25 and 30 years and were speaking in Kannada and Hindi. The police have obtained CCTV footage from nearby areas to ascertain the identity of the suspects.
