According to Ghanshyam Bansal, the Deputy Commissioner of Police (west), the incident happened on December 11 at around 9.30 a.m. when a woman, identified as Ruchi Gulyani, a resident of Moti Nagar, was on going to her office in Rajouri Garden.
“When she reached near Mehta Chowk in Rajouri Garden, two boys on a grey colour scooty came and while she was talking on her mobile they snatched her mobile phone. Ruchi tried to hold on to the mobile phone, but the snatchers were forceful,” said Bansal.
Ruchi stopped a passerby and requested him to help her in chasing the suspect. With his help, she chased the two. In the meantime, the robbers also managed to snatch another mobile phone at the C-Block, Tagore Garden Extension from one, Arvind Kumar Singh.
