New Delhi: Despite tall claims made by Delhi police to stop street crimes like snatching and robbery, cases of snatching have been on the rise. The snatchers, who are ruling the roost, snatched a chain from an upper secretary of Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) on Wednesday. In another incidence, the miscreants snatched a bag from a BSNL DGM’s car earlier in the morning on the same day. Indu Suresh Kumari, the upper secretary in UPSC, was on a two-wheeler with her husband when the miscreants snatched a chain from her neck and fled the spot. After a few moments, a shell-shocked Indu realised that she was being mugged. She raised an alarm, but by then the miscreants had fled the spot.

The same day in a similar incident, some muggers allegedly snatched away a bag from Shiv Singh, the director general manager (DGM) of BSNL, early in the morning. At the time of the incident Mr Singh was travelling in an auto-rickshaw from Kashmere Gate bus stand.

 

According to statistics, the national capital has registered over 730 cases of snatching every month while more than 271 people have been robbed by miscreants in the city. Upto March 15, 2017, the city registered 683 robbery cases. In a span of one-and-half-months, the number shot up to 1,081 by April 30, 2017.
