The local police arrested an SAS Nagar resident for snatching mobile phone from a Dhanas resident in Chandigarh on Sunday.


The suspect has been identified as Amir Khan. In his complaint, Hardeep Singh said that a motorcycle-borne youngster came up from behind him to snatch away his mobile phone while he was talking over it.

The victim had allegedly also told the police that he had failed to note down the registration number of the vehicle and the accused was wearing a helmet.

A case has been registered under sections 356 (assault or criminal force in attempt to commit theft of property carried by a person) and 379 (punishment for theft) of the Indian Penal Code.

Khan was produced before the magistrate's court and was later remanded to police custody.

Foot-in-mouth disease among humans

The foot-and-mouth disease afflicts cows, buffaloes and sheep and causes them to break out in acute fever and blisters and could be fatal. Whereas the foot-in-mouth disease is known to attack us humans as we often shoot off our mouths, resulting in embarrassment. One may think that the tendency to say the wrong thing, at the wrong time, takes some doing, but actually it is a common malady and afflicts us all, at some time or the other. Writes Pallavi Singh.
