Snatchers target woman sitting outside her house in Chandigarh
Two motorcycle-borne snatchers targeted a 45-year-old woman sitting in the sun outside her house in Sector 40 on Tuesday.

But, she held onto it, causing it to break. The snatcher fled with a part of the chain, while the remaining was left in Anju’s hand.
On her complaint, a case under Section 379A (snatching) of the Indian Penal Code was registered at the Sector-29 police station. Police are scanning footage of CCTV cameras installed in the area to nab the accused.
