HYDERABAD:The craze for yellow metal in and around the city, with each passing day, appears to be notoriously rising. There seems to be no end to the chain snatching incidents as four more cases were reported from different police stations of Cyberabad limits on Saturday.

At around 6.30 in the morning, when Jayamma (65) stepped out of her house at High Court colony to buy flowers, one person snatched her 4 tola gold chain and vanished in a jiffy. Jayamma recalled that the bike bore no number plate and the snatcher had not covered his face. 

It was a similar incident at East Anandbagh under Malkajgiri Police limits where Purnima (38) was snatched off her gold chain in the bylanes of SBI colony when she was heading towards a nearby bank at around 12.30 p.m. “It was a fair complexioned man on a black pulsar. She lost around 40 per cent of her gold chain. That should be around 1.5 tolas,” said Shekhar Goud, Malkajgiri inspector. He pointed out that another similar incident at Brahmarambika Nagar was said to have occurred but no complaint was received.

At Moula Ali housing board under Kushaiguda police limits, M Kamalamma (50) was heading to a nearby grocery shop at around 11.45 a.m., when her chain was snatched. “No one has seen the incident. She said a man walked upto her and snatched away her mangalsutram weighing about 4 tolas,”said Kushaiguda inspector N Venkata Ramana.

Whereas, Susheelamma (70) at LB Nagar on Saturday early morning was robbed off her 2 tolas gold chain even when she had not stepped out of her compound wall. “A Telugu speaking man asked Susheelamma for some details about a man from the locality and in the process, snatched her chain and escaped on a bike,” said LB Nagar inspector E Srinivas Reddy. The incident took place at 8.30a.m at Krushinagar in Bandlaguda.

The Cyberabad Police have started analysing the crime incidents by plotting the locations of google maps and by trying to rework the patrolling systems.
