The daughter-in-law of Shiromani Gurdwara Parbhandak Committee (SGPC) chief Avtar Singh Makkar fell prey to snatchers in broad daylight in Model Town on Wednesday.
In her complaint, the victim, Inderjit Kaur Makkar, said she was visiting Guru Teg Bahadur market in the area to buy a cricket kit for her son. Meanwhile, as soon as she came out of her car to enter a shop, two motorcycle-borne men, whose faces were covered, approached her and snatched her bag, before fleeing the spot, she alleged.
Inderjit, who is also wife of area councilor Manwinderpal Singh Makkar, claimed that her bag contained `75,000 in cash, a gold pendant and some documents.
The Model Town police have registered a case under section 382 (theft after preparation made for causing death, hurt or restraint in order to the committing of the theft) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against the two unidentified persons.
