Time has come to declare war on chain-snatching terror

Two more chain-snatching incidents have been added to the list prepared using reams and reams of paper.

Nagpur News: Now, time has come to declare a war on chain-snatching terror either by Nagpur Police or the citizens. The second choice appears mightier as the city police have miserably failed to kill the crime or at least inflict an injury. God knows which language the Nagpur police understand as all the newspapers published in various Indian languages have tasted the humiliating defeats in waking up police on chain-snatching war front.

According to police, two more chain-snatching incidents have been added to the list of reams and reams of paper. The first incident occurred near Isolation Ward in Imambada. One Moly Madhu (48), a resident of Vishwakarma Nagar, was returning home on moped (MH-31/DG 7754) after attending a marriage in Seminary Hills. Suddenly two unidentified youths riding a Bajaj Pulsar appeared near Isolation Ward and fiercely slapped Moly. Taken aback by the shocking fact Moly could not even come to know that her gold chain was grabbed by the goons. The cost of the chain has been quoted Rs 30,000. Moly immediately lodged a complaint with Imambada Police Station who in turn registered an offence against the two goons.

Second incident happend near Wardhaman Nagar Power House Square when one Narmada Jangid , resident of Saileela Apartment, Kalamna, was returning home with husband Nandlal on Mahendra Duro (MH-31/DE4724) after attending a relative’s marriage. When they reached near Wardhaman Nagar Power House Square, two motorcycle borne youths swiftly cleared her neck of gold chain worth Rs 20,000. After the incident, both husband-wife rushed to Lakadganj Police Station and filed a complaint in this regard. Lakadganj police, too, completed the formalities of registering an offence against the two unidentified youths.  Though the costs of gold chains appear less compared to hundreds of chain-snatching cases till yesterday, the incidents in any manner draw no importance looking to the Everest of such incidents.

Now, time has come to declare a war on chain-snatching terror either by Nagpur Police or the citizens. The second choice appears mightier as the city police have miserably failed to kill the crime or at least inflict an injury. God knows which language the Nagpur police understand as all the newspapers published in various Indian languages have tasted the humiliating defeats in waking up police on chain-snatching war front.

Once Tony Blair, former Britain Prime Minister said: “Whatever the dangers of the action we take, the dangers of inaction are far far greater.” Or “Action cures fear, inaction creates terror.” Or “Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”


So, get ready for war. No weapons or arms needed for this kind of war. The only action could be taken has to be taken by the girls or women who are bearing the most brunt at hands of the dreaded goons who are on looting spree in Nagpur.

The women in thousands should march totally peaceful manner towards totally Nagpur Police Commissioner’s official residence in Civil Lines. The women don’t have to utter a single word. They just carry banners with a written appeal or demand or hope: “Should we Nagpur women surrender to the tormentor goons”? “Should we Nagpur women start wearing no jewelleries or dump them in drainage lines”? “We don’t have answers to many more questions.” The answers lie with you Mr. Police Commissioner.”

Hope some concrete steps would be taken by the Nagpur police, who, if, declare war on chain-snatching terror.
