Delhi snatching news: At a time when the Delhi Police is patting its own back for nabbing the men who snatched Prime Minister Narendra Modi niece’s mobile phones and purse in just over 24 hours, yet another snatching case involving a high-profile person has come to light. Bike-borne assailants snatched the mobile phone of a Metropolitan Magistrate in north Delhi’s Kamla Nagar area.
The incident took place late on Monday when he was returning from a restaurant after having dinner with his family. As soon as the magistrate took out his phone to receive a call, the bike-borne snatchers pounced on him and fled away from the spot, news agency ANI reported.
The police have registered a case and further investigations are on.
PM Modi’s niece Damyanti Ben Modi was targeted by snatchers outside the Gujarati Samaj Bhawan in Civil Lines area last Saturday. The robbers took away her mobile phones along with the purse containing Rs 56,000 cash while she was getting out of an autorickshaw.
The police swung into action soon. Several teams were formed to nab the snatchers. Aroud 700 policemen pressed into action to scan the city and its outskirts to get to the culprits. The investigation also saw the cops scanning through some 200 CCTV recordings.
While one of the accused was arrested a few hours after the incident, the second one was arrested a day later from Haryana’s Sonipat area.
