Two motorcycle-borne miscreants snatched the purse of a woman journalist, Minna Zutshi, who works for an English daily, near Sarabha Nagar market on Friday evening.
The purse contained Rs. 11,000, besides an ATM card, identity card and driving licence and other documents.
Zutshi said she was heading towards Sarabha Nagar on a cycle rickshaw where she had parked her car. As the rickshaw took a turn from Ferozepur road towards Hotel Le Baron, two motorcycle-borne appeared on the scene. The pillion rider pounced on the purse of Zutshi, who resisted the attack without success and the miscreants fled the spot with her purse.
Zutshi immediately sounded the Sarabha Nagar police. Sarabha Nagar SHO Mandeep Singh said a case had been registered and efforts were on to nab the snatchers.
