“Your courage and presence of mind resulted in the recovery of the snatched gold chain and apprehension of the robbers. Your act of valour is not only praiseworthy but places you as a role model for others,” the felicitation letter read.
Subrat Ojha and his mother Manorama Ojha were travelling in an auto-rickshaw on Canal Road in Bomikhal area under Mancheswar police limits in the city on August 14, when three bike-borne miscreants snatched away a gold chain from the neck of the woman and tried to flee the spot on a motorcycle. Son of the victim immediately alighted from the three-wheeler and chased the trio.
Moments later, he nabbed the wrongdoers following which they fell from the two-wheeler. However, one of them managed to escape.
