Snatchers attack woman returning home with son
New Delhi: A number of police teams have been formed to nab two chain snatchers who attacked a woman in outer Delhi’s Chhawla on Friday. Police have found CCTV footage of the crime and launched a manhunt to nab the accused.
The footage shows the moment when the woman is targeted by the men on a motorcycle. Police said the incident happened in the afternoon in Dinpur colony near Chhawla village and a case has been registered.
The victim in a pink suit can be seen walking with her son after picking him up from the school, unmindful that the snatchers on a black Pulsar are following her. The pillion rider gets off and stands on one side of the street, while the rider stops at a distance, waiting for the woman to pass.
The camera captures one of the accused wearing jeans and red shirt slowly moving close to the woman and his associate in blue shirt and jeans waiting for him on the motorcycle at a distance. The former then snatches the chain and runs. The woman tries to fight back and chases them, but in vain.
Later, the police were alerted about the incident and the statement of the woman was recorded. While checking the CCTV cameras near the scene of crime, the cops recovered the footage that had captured the whole incident. They are scanning the clip to zero in on the identity of the accused and get the registration details of the motorcycle.
