Bhubaneswar: The Capital Police have launched a manhunt to nab miscreants who snatched a gold necklace from a woman under broad daylight in the Unit-II Market area here on Wednesday afternoon.
According to eyewitnesses, the woman was on way to the market when two bike-borne persons came from behind and snatched the gold chain which she was wearing. They then tried to take away her bag, but the woman held on to it tightly and shouted for help.
As some locals rushed to the spot, the miscreants tried to flee with the bag and dragged the woman to a distance. Ultimately, they fled without the bag, leaving the woman injured.
Local people helped her lodge a complaint with the police.
“We are verifying the CCTV footage to identify the miscreants,” said a police officer of the Capital Police Station.
