The festival of Vaikunta Ekadasi, on which day the doors of Vishnuloka open was utilised notoriously by chain snatchers in the city. As women visited temples in their best gold early in the morning, the chain snatchers lost no chance. In such a worst incident,
a snatcher pulled six tulas of gold chain from a woman at Suryodaya Colony, Saroor Nagar police station limits. The woman sustained head injuries as she lost her balance and fell down. Her injuries were closed with six sutures at a local hospital.
