GUWAHATI: A gang of miscreants snatched an amount of Rs. 50,000 in cash from a girl in Guwahati on Tuesday.
As per reports, the incident took place near a bank in Lal Ganesh area of Guwahati on Tuesday when the girl was on her way back to home after withdrawing the money (Rs. 50,000) from a bank. The girl Monalisa Das, who had gone to deposit a cheque in her father's name, was approached when he was on her way to home. The miscreants, after approaching her, grabbed a bag she had with her and escaped in a bike. The bag contained the cash, reports said.
Immediately after the bag was snatched, she started screaming for help, but the bike-borne miscreants had fled by then. The officer in-charge of Fatasil police station D. Phukan said the matter was being probed thoroughly and a manhunt was on to nab all the miscreants involved in the crime. The OC mentioned that people who withdraw big amounts from banks should be careful as they can be targeted by those looking to rob them for money.
It may be mentioned that the Assam police has seemingly been on a mission to curb crimes from the state ever since Himanta Biswa Sarma became the chief minister. Operations have been carried out by law enforcement agencies and miscreants apprehended in the past two to three months in connection with various crimes. Many suspected criminals have been injured and killed too, after they tried escaping from police custody.
