Two men on a bike snatched a mangalsutra worth Rs1.15 lakh from a woman travelling by autorickshaw in Dombivli on Thursday.
The police registered a case against the two unidentified men, who are yet to be traced. The 30-year-old woman is a resident of Vahulipo in Padgha. She had come to her relative’s place in Dombivli and was returning home when the incident occurred.
The woman said she was with one of her relatives in the autorickshaw when the men rode close to the vehile. While one of them was wearing a helmet, the other had tied a handkerchief on the lower half of his face. The pillion rider hit her on her back and snatched her mangalsutra. The men then rode away.
“The two-wheeler did not have a number plate. When the men snatched the woman’s mangalsutra, she lost her balance. If not for the autoricksaw’s iron bars, she would have fallen out and been seriously injured. She has abrasions on her neck owing to the force with which the mangalsutra was snatched,” said an officer from Manpada police station.
The woman was taken to a nearby hospital and discharged after treatment. “We suspect that the men are from Ambivli in Kalyan. We are also examining the CCTV camera footage for clues,” added the officer.
The men were booked under section 392 (punishment for robbery) of 34 of the Indian Penal Code.
