BANGALORE: A homemaker, who tried to cheat the police by filing a false case of chain snatching, was arrested by Kempegowda Nagar police. The accused Bhagyalakshmi, 47, is a resident of Thalaghattapura.
According to the police, the woman had come to the station to file a chain snatching case. She had alleged that while she was returning home, unidentified miscreants had snatched away her gold chain near Allamma Prabhu Road.
“She had hidden a roll gold chain inside a flush tank at her relative’s house and had left.
