GHAN­SOLI: Al­though the Navi Mum­bai po­lice re­cently stepped up ef­forts to re­duce the num­ber of chain-snatch­ing in­ci­dents in the city and even started con­duct­ing nak­a­ban­dis, there’s no stop­ping mis­cre­ants.

In a brazen act, a man­gal­su­tra worth Rs25,000 was snatched from a lady in Ghan­soli, who was walk­ing near the Ghan­soli po­lice chowky. De­spite the po­lice hav­ing put up bar­ri­cades for naka­bandi there, the ac­cused man­aged to pass by, as there were no po­lice per­son­nel in the af­ter­noon when the in­ci­dent took place.

Anita Am­rale was near Haware chowk in sec­tor 3-4, on her way to pick her child up from school, when two uniden­ti­fied men ar­rived on a bike. The pil­lion rider snatched the chain and the duo fled. As­sis­tant po­lice in­spec­tor SB Katare of Kopar Khairane po­lice sta­tion is in­ves­ti­gat­ing the case.
