The reports of chain-snatching incidents, if one were to measure in length, would certainly touch the skies, and after considering hundreds of incidents in future,too, then space (The physical universe beyond the Earth’s atmosphere) is not far away. The incidents have become so common the scribes must have started feeling nausea. But reports must in the hope the Nagpur police one day would provide a full stop. Of course, for criminals sky is no limit.
