Chain snatching reported

A brazen incident of forcible theft occurred in the Ashoka Marg area, where a two-wheeler rider snatched the gold thread around the neck of a woman returning home after Devdarshan. In this incident, a mangalsutra worth around 50,000 rupees was stolen, and a case of forcible theft has been registered at Mumbai Naka police station.

 Mira Chhaburao Kute, a resident of Shubham Apartments, Ashoka Marg, filed a complaint. Kute had gone to the Ganesh Baba temple in the area as usual on Tuesday (18th) evening. The incident took place when she was returning home after completing the Devdarshan.

Further investigations are being conducted by Hawaldar Temgar.

Youth Cheated of ₹3.5 Lakh in investment scam

A youth has been cheated of ₹3.5 lakh after being coerced into investing in a business dealing with emergency bulbs. A case has been registered at the Panchvati police station.

The suspect, identified as Rahul Rajaji alias Bittu (resident of Tarangan Society, Omkarnagar, Makhmalabad), allegedly approached the victim, Gagan Pravin Kokate (25, resident of Vrindavan Nagar, Mahsrul), last year in the Panchvati vegetable market yard area. The suspect enticed Kokate into investing in what he claimed to be a highly profitable business of buying and selling emergency lights.

Under the pretense of a lucrative opportunity, the suspect managed to collect approximately ₹3,39,250 from Kokate through various means, including PhonePe, UPI, and credit card transactions. However, after securing the funds, the suspect became unreachable and failed to return the investment amount.

Realising the deception, Kokate filed a complaint, and Sub-Inspector Sonwane is currently conducting further investigation into the matter.
