At a time when the city is in a festive mood, a string of 10 chain-snatching incidents within 12 hours has dampened the spirit of the citizens. The string of snatching incidents sparked fear among women in the city.
Police believe the two bike-borne unidentified miscreants were from one gang in all these incidents, which happened in quick succession on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning.
The youths committed snatching in Vanasthalipuram, L.B. Nagar, Hayathnagar and Meerpet police station limits. The police recovered the footage of surveillance cameras in which the offences were recorded and were on the lookout for the suspects.
