The chain snatching incidences are on the increase for quite some time now. Our neighbor lady had lost her gold chain to an auto rickshaw driver a few years back, during her early morning walk. Similar incidences are on the increase which has made Bangalore police to sit up and take note. Beat police on motor bikes are a common sight, during our early morning walk.
A miscreant who was trying to flee after attempting to snatching a woman’s gold chain was caught after he shot by the police in Banashankari on Friday evening. The incident unfolded near Sevakshetra Hospital in Banashankari II Stage about 7.30pm. Deputy Commissioner of police (South) Sonia Narang said V Ravi, 27, was nabbed after a bullet injured his left leg.
To day at about 6:30AM, when we were just coming out of the park at 12th main Indiranagar double road, we saw a person being held and thrashed by people. The person pleading his innocence was being questioned. People frantically tried to contact police over their mobiles in vain. My friend ran and brought the girl who supposedly was the target of the man caught. She was however not too keen to get involved. The man was beaten red and blue instead, my friend too joining the fray too. Though the crowd was for handing over the guy to the police, it was finally decided to let him go, when we dispersed.
