Gritty woman nabs chain-snatcher

A 23-year-old woman from Bengaluru nabbed a chain-snatcher after a chase in Srirangapatna on Saturday.

Navya, wife of Suresh Kumar, a resident of Mahalakshmipuram Layout in Bengaluru, nabbed Naveen Kumar, 25, a resident of Sanaba village in Pandavapura taluk, when he was fleeing after snatching her 60-gram gold chain.

The incident occurred near Nimishamba Temple in Ganjam near here. Navya, along with her family members, had came to the town to visit the temple. 

When all the family members were in the temple, Navya was sitting in the car. Naveen, who approached Navya, asking her about some address, snatched the chain.

Navya, who came out of the car, chased him for nearly 10 to 12 metres and caught him. Soon, people, who were nearby, handed him over to the police.

Naveen, an MA degree holder, married just six months ago, indulged in  crime to make easy money, said the police.
