Snatch­ers at­tack woman re­turn­ing home with son

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times City - TIMES NEWS NET­WORK

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. Other cam­eras along the stretch are also be­ing scanned to trace the es­cape route taken by the ac­cused.
