Snatch­ers tar­get man near Red Fort

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times City -

New Delhi: Even the high se­cu­rity cover near Red Fort area could not avert a snatch­ing in­ci­dent where a man was at­tacked for his gold chain near Geeta Colony fly­over.

The vic­tim, Babinder Singh, who was re­turn­ing from Chandni Chowk, told the po­lice that around 7.30am, when he reached a lit­tle ahead of Shanti Van on his bike, two bik­ers wear­ing hel­mets way­laid him and sig­nalled him to slow down. Sud­denly, the per­son rid­ding pil­lion grabbed his chain and fled to­wards Geeta Colony in east Delhi. The vic­tim suf­fered mi­nor in­juries in the in­ci­dent.

Singh said both the men seemed to be in their 20s and had their faces cov­ered. Po­lice said sev­eral teams have been formed to track down the crim­i­nals. They are also scan­ning the CCTV footage of the area to zero in on the ac­cused.
