New Delhi: Bike-borne snatch­ers con­tinue to target peo­ple in Delhi. Two more women be­came their vic­tims in sep­a­rate in­ci­dents in north­east Delhi on Tues­day.

In the first in­ci­dent, Su­nita was at­tacked by a man, who snatched her gold ear­rings in Bha­jan­pura area. She suf­fered se­vere in­juries to her ear, and had to un­dergo surgey for the torn mus­cles.

Her hus­band Balvir Singh, who is a govern­ment em­ployee, told cops that they were out for a morn­ing walk when the in­ci­dent happened. “We were on Ya­muna Vi­har Road at 5.30am when a man in his early 20s walked up to us and tried to snatch my wife’s ear­rings. He caught hold of my wife and tried to re­move her ear­rings. When we re­sisted, he got into a scuff­fle with us and man­aged to es­cape with the ear­rings,” Singh told cops.

Even as the woman fell on the ground with her right ear bleeding pro­fusely, the snatch­ers fled to­wards Bha­gat Singh Park. Singh took his wife to a nearby hos­pi­tal, and she un­der­went the surgery on Wed­nes­day. A case of rob­bery has been regis­tered at Bha­jan­pura poli

A few hours later, an­other woman lost her ear­rings to snatch­ers in Jaf­frabad. The victim Kam­lesh told the po­lice that she was out for a walk with her dog when two men on a Scooty tar­geted her. The in­ci­dent was cap­tured on the CCTV cam­eras in­stalled in the area. A case has been regis­tered, and po­lice are scan­ning the footage to iden­tify the ac­cused.

No ar­rests were made till Wed­nes­day evening in any of these two cases.
