Three chain snatching incidents were reported from various places in the city during the past twelve hours.
Chain snatching, robberies and traffic violations cases have become quite conspicuous despite intensive police patrolling.
In the first incident bike borne miscreants snatched a gold chain from the wife of an Assistant Commandant, serving in the second battalion.
The incident occurred in front of the AC’s bungalow situated in the Kampoo area of the city.
In the second incident, miscreants fled with a gold chain of a lady who was out for her morning walk.
The lady, wife of a retired headmaster, was walking alone at the Govindpuri area of the city in the morning when an unknown assailant snatched the chain and fled away.
In yet another incident of chain snatching two goons attacked an old lady at Krishna Nagar before fleeing with her gold chain.
Though the police recently arrested a gang of chain snatchers there doesn’t seem to be any laxity in this particular brand of crime.
The police are yet to get any vital clues about these three incidents though they have released the CCTV footage of one of the suspected criminals.
In a related incident drunken bike riders caused the death of a nine year old girl when they crushed the girl under the out of control bullet.
The tragic incident occurred at the Saraswati Nagar area in the intervening night of Tuesday- Wednesday.
The bullet bike bearing registration number MP 07 NB 9373 lost control and crashed into the nine year old Anushka Varma who was sitting on the steps of her house.
According to eye witnesses three people, who were apparently drunk were riding on the bike and it was travelling over 100 kms per hour.
