Snatching would become a non-bailable offence in Haryana with a higher quantum of punishment after the state assembly passed two Bills on Monday to amend the Indian Penal Code and Code of Criminal Procedure.


As per the Code of Criminal Procedure (Haryana Amendment) Bill, 2014, the quantum of punishment for snatching would now be five years, which may extend to 10 years, along with a fine of Rs. 25,000.

In case of snatching with hurt or wrongful restraint or fear of hurt, the quantum of punishment would be 10 years, which may extend to 14 years, and fine of Rs. 25,000. Earlier the quantum of punishment was two years, or with fine, or with both. Also, the trial in these matters will be conducted by a court of sessions.
