Chain snatching incidents in the national capital are not uncommon and several cases have been reported recently.
Last month, a chain snatcher died after he was allegedly hit on the head with an iron rod by a man trying to stop him from escaping in Delhi’s neighbouring Noida.
The man riding pillion snatched the chain and tried to escape from the spot. The three men in the park raised an alarm. Soon people came to their aid and tried to stop the bikers. Someone from the crowd picked up an iron rod lying nearby and hit one of the bikers.
