Inspector's wife robbed of gold chain

Two miscreants snatched the gold chains of three women in North Bengaluru on Makara Sankranti. One of the victims is the wife of a police inspector.  

Gangamma, the wife of Kenchegowda, an inspector at the state police headquarters, was watering plants at her residence in HMT Layout, Peenya,  when a motorcycle pulled  in.

The pillion rider got off the vehicle and ran towards Gangamma. He suddenly lunged at her and tried to snatch her chain. She resisted his efforts and held onto the  chain. The man turned violent, dragged her to the gate, snatched the chain and fled from the spot.  

Hearing her screams, Kenchegowda rushed out of the house and went after the duo. Police said the chain-snatchers were wearing caps and that the incident had been caught on CCTV camera.

Later, the gang robbed another woman of her 42-gram chain. Sougandhita  was drawing rangoli outside her home in Brindavan Layout near Bagalagunte. The men approached her on the pretext of enquiring about an address. As the woman looked at  an address scribbled on a paper, they snatched her chain and fled.  

The gang's third victim was Sharadamma who was on the way to a temple. The attackers dragged her on the road until she parted with the jewellery.  

Police suspect an Irani gang behind all the three incidents.
