Pickpockets usually have a field day at crowded places like railway stations, bus stands, parks and other areas with high footfall. But on Friday, the target was Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s Ramakrishna Nagar residence in the city and the victim a corporator.

Though the CM’s residence is a high-security zone, the miscreant took advantage of the crowd assembled to submit grievances to Siddaramaiah. The miscreant picked corporator Ramesh’s pocket before fleeing the scene. Ramesh was robbed of his wallet which had `18,500, a PAN card and other documents. Ramesh had accompanied Chamaraja MLA Vasu to the CM’s residence to discuss the water crisis in Chamraja and other areas like Mettagalli in his ward.

According to sources, the pickpocket took place when Siddaramaiah came out of the house to address the media. Ramesh was not available for comments. Police sources said that the corporator had not filed any complaint.
