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. Later, she returned and told her relative that her chain was snatched and the duo went to the police station to file a case. Meanwhile, one of her relatives found the chain in the flush tank and went to the police station. When Bhagyalakshmi was questioned, she revealed her ploy,” police said.
