Two unidentified bikers allegedly robbed a 78-year-old woman of her gold chain during her morning walk near the Lilavati Hospital at Bandra (West) on Wednesday morning.
Parvati Kinney from the Indraneel building in Bandra was accompanied by her husband. She received minor injuries. An officer from Bandra police station said, “The couple goes for morning walk daily. At 6.55 am on Wednesday, they were at KC Marg when the two bikers came from behind and snatched the gold chain. She lost her balance and fell. Her husband failed to prevent the fall.”
Kinney usually does not wear jewellery during morning walk, but the previous day she had attended a function and forgot to remove the gold chain, said the officer.
After the incident, the woman and her husband consulted with their relatives and filed a complaint with the Bandra police. The police said the gold chain was priced around Rs75,000.
The police have registered a case under sections 392 (punishment for robbery), 279 (rash driving or riding on a public way) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the Indian penal Code. The police have formed teams to trace the bikers.
