Two bike-borne miscreants snatched a bag containing Rs3.5 lakh from a city-based businessman near Cheema Chowk here today.
Victim Akshay, a resident of Chandigarh Road, had withdrawn the amount from a bank. He said he was going towards his car, which was parked away from the bank. The moment he opened the car’s lock, two bike-borne people suddenly pounced on him and snatched the bag.
“I was shocked when they pushed me to the ground and snatched the bag. I could not even notice the bike’s number. Both of them were wearing helmets. They were not even armed. Fortunately, they did not inflict any injury on me,” the victim said.
Later, the police saw the CCTV footage of the cameras installed outside the bank. However, the incident could not be captured. Now, the police have been collecting the CCTV footages from nearby areas to get a clue about the accused.
The police said investigation was launched after registering a case against unidentified persons.
