Nagpur: One more incident of women tricksters robbing co-passengers in autos has come to light in city. Cops apparently seem helpless in curbing the kind of crimes occurring as a routine.
A resident of 203, B Wing, JP Chamber, Madhav Nagar, Deepika Shashikant Mahajan (51), around 12.30 pm on Friday, boarded an auto already occupied by three women. Between Khamla Bus Stop and Orange City Hospital, one of the women pretended to be vomiting and as the attention of Deepika got diverted, the other two women slyly removed gold mangalsutra she was wearing. The gold stuff was valued at Rs 30,000. The con women also pilfered Rs 180 from Deepika’s purse. By the time Deepika could notice the theft, the three criminal women had already disembarked from the auto and vanished from the scene.
Pratap Nagar ASI Raut, based on Deepika’s complaint, booked the three unidentified women robbers under Sections 379, 34 of the IPC and searching for them.
