He took away my ring, chain and ₹2,000 and then fled the spot with his accomplice. I was not able to see their motorcycle’s registration number. The man, riding pillion, was wearing a helmet and the other one was wearing a mask to cover his face. After the incident, I went home and called police helpline number,” Misra said in the first information report (FIR).
