Nagpur : Chain snatchers continue to have their way with cops going slow on tiding such rising crimes. Of late, these anti-social elements have hit on this particular crime as it makes easier for them to grab the booty from the women’s neck. In similar such incident yet another woman became soft target for the bike-borne miscreants who snatched gold chain worth Rs 50,000, leaving her crying for help, but in vain.

Police sources said Archana Shrikant Labhe (48), a resident of Hingna Kachar Ward, near CIC Office, Wardha was going with her sisters-in-law Aparna Kiran Labhe (50) and Surekha Purushottam Chande (62) to pay condolence to one of her relatives. A motorbike-borne youth came from the front near Sangh Building, Pethkar Galli and snatched Archana’s mangalsutra worth Rs 50,000 and fled the spot.

The three women approached Kotwali police and lodged a complaint against the chain-snatcher. Cops have registered an offence under section 393 of the IPC and started their investigations.
