They took my purse in which there were my things, including Pan Card, bank card and other items. They took out Rs 35,000 from my left pocket. I can recognize them if I see them again. Please take right action. I was not hurt in the incident,” he said.

Cases of snatching by youths on motorbike are on the rise. A few weeks ago, a girl had complained about how she became victim of snatchers. Narrating her story, she had said the incident took place with her in Abul Fazal Enclave when she was on an e-rickshaw with two other friends. Shockingly, according to her, the boy who was travelling with them on the e-rickshaw turned out to be a snatcher.
