Two bike-borne men snatched the chain of a woman, who was returning from her school, in Dholpur.
Usha Sharma, who works as a vice principal in a Government Senior Secondary School, was returning home when the incident happened on the busy Dusherra road, which was captured on CCTV.
The woman ran after the snatchers for some distance and even shouted for help but to no avail. The accused managed to escape through Bhamtipura locality.
Recalling the incident, Usha Sharma, the vice principal, said, “I was returning from school. On the way, I saw a man selling pomegranate. I stopped to buy pomegranate. That’s when two bike-borne youths came and started speaking with the man selling pomegranate. The two did not buy pomegranate, but snatched my chain and fled away.”
Meanwhile, the woman has filed a complaint with the police and it has collected CCTV footage from a liquor shop on the Dusherra road which captured the incident.
“The female teacher has filed a case of chain snatching. Have begun the search for the ruffians on the basis of CCTV footage,” Investigating officer Lakhan Singh said.
