Chain-snatchers up, no FIRs

chainChain-snatchers are on the rise in Telugu States and supreme court’s orders to file FIR on any complaint fell on deaf ears of the police stations as women and girls are being victimized. Two women were reportedly killed in the chain-snatching events. Still cops are evasive to implement the GPS system to track down the culprits as they seem to be hand in gloves with the thieves. Added to this finance companies offer clandestine support to them and recently staff of Muthoot Manappuram were held as they were behind the chain-snatching force. Higher-ups said the thieves are backed by the vested interests. In all, 400 culprits are on the prowl and their income was said to be Rs 50 crore with daily collections amounting to Rs 10 lakhs worth gold ornaments, according to police. Notorious thief Siva’s assets, after 700 judicious and adroit chain-snatchings, are said to be Rs 14 crore, according to police.
