Elderly woman robbed

Two bike-borne miscreants robbed an elderly woman from a lane behind Ram Mandir at gun point on Wednesday afternoon. Indumati Rao, the complainant, was walking home with her daughter-in-law Padmaja Rao when the miscreants struck. They intercepted the duo and snatched Indumati’s gold necklace weighing about 70 gram at gun-point. During the process, a portion of the jewellery got stuck on Indumati’s neck while the robbers managed to grab the rest.

Though the incident occurred around noon when the shops and offices dotting the lane were open, not many came to the help as the youths terrorised the locals with the gun before fleeing on their red coloured Pulsar bike. No one has been arrested yet. A case has been lodged at Kharavela Nagar police station.
