Brave Panja Youth Chases and Catches Chain-snatcher in Bengaluru
Sullia: Sudhir, son of Nerala Duggappa Gowda of Aivattoklu in Panja in the taluk, has been hailed as a real hero by nabbing a thief in Bengaluru recently.
Sudhir works as an interior designer in the state capital. Ramya and her husband were travelling in a train from the Baiyappanahalli railway station towards Kolar.
As the train was slowly moving away from the station and had covered about 300 metres, a thief suddenly snatched the chain which Ramya wore and jumped off the train.
The couple too jumped off and began chasing the culprit. Sudhir happened to be there and he too joined the chase.
After chasing him over a distance of two kilometres, he single-handedly overpowered him. The man was identified as Premkumar Biswas (38).
Sudhir’s presence of mind, bravery, initiative and risky effort were widely appreciated by the police and the public.
The couple had no words to thank him, esp., because he did not even know them.
