TWO CULPRITS snatched a gold chain from a woman’s neck in the busy Bhopal Utsav Mela on Sunday night. According to T T Nagar police, the victim, Shweta Jain (23) wife of R P Jain lives in Saeed Nagar in the Koh-e-Fiza area. On Sunday, the husband-wife had come to visit the Bhopal Mela.

While they were looking around the mela, the culprits suddenly came near Shweta and before she could understand anything one of them snatched away her gold chain and fled from the spot.

Shweta’s husband raised an alarm but the culprits managed to escape taking advantage of the huge crowd that was present at the mela due to a holiday.

The victim reached the T T Nagar police station and lodged a complaint about the loot. She told police the looted chain was worth about Rs 17,000. Police registered a case of loot against the two culprits and a hunt was launched to identify and nab him.

On Monday, police were able to identify and nab one of the accused, Hasan. Police were interrogating Hasan while the search for his accomplice was still on, police said.
