Mangaluru: Chain Snatched from Woman Waiting for Bus in the Heart of City

Mangaluru: What used to happen in uptown areas in the city or suburbs was reported from the heart of the city – Hampankatta – on Monday.

Komala and Vivekanandan couple had arrived from Kerala in the early hours by train and had walked up to Hampankatta.

Around 4-30 am, as they were waiting for a bus at the signal circle, a young man wearing a black shirt and with a towel covering his face arrived from K S Rao Road direction and suddenly snatched a gold chain from Komala’s neclk.

After doing so, he ran towards the old bus stand and escaped with another man who had a getaway bike ready, with its engine running.

Vivekanandan is said to have tried to chase him in an autorickshaw but it was too late to track them down.

The value of the lost chain is said to be Rs 1.50 lakh. A complaint has been filed at the Bunder police station.

It is quite sad that the name of the city is getting spoiled this way and outsiders would hesitate to visit Mangaluru in future, said a few among those who gathered after the incident.

Never-ending ‘chain’ of incidents:

  1. A clear sign of moral degrade and lack of policing in our city. Unlike many political illiterates on this forum, I am not going to blame it on ruling party. (That’s what these dishonest folks do blaming every crime and imaginary attacks on church/mosque on the party they hate) This seems to be a much bigger issue spreading to smaller cities from metros. It was very common in big cities like Bengalooru and now these gangs are operating in Mangaluru area. It’s unrealistic and unfair to ask people to walk around with no chain as every married Hindu woman wears ‘mangala sutra’ as part of tradition. Our Police needs to wake up and protect ordinary citizens from these street thugs.

      Hello, Paimaam, this was what you were doing all the time. How come that Jnaanodayaa Donned on you, all of a sudden?

      Like Buddha Poornimaa to Buddhaa, it seems your “mavdhya” disappeared on “Modipoornimaa”!

      • Please stop embarrassing yourself. I said I don’t criticize just for the sake of criticizing. I don’t worship one party over the other like the way you do on daily basis. See my posts critical of state bjp and other leaders. Well, you will understand when you develop some honesty!!

        • Original R.Pai – “I don’t worship one party over the other like the way you do on daily basis. See my posts ***critical of state bjp*** and other leaders. Well, you will understand when you develop some honesty!!”

          You have admitted that you find fault with state BJP only, while refraining to do so against the worst central BJP! This is your behavior, because your altar ego, Narendra Modi, is the head of the Central BJP government.

          Sir, if my allegiance is to the Congress party, your allegiance is not to the BJP party, but worst still, to an individual, Modi. This is the dictatorial streak in you. RSS and YOU have this dictatorial streak in common!!!

          Sir, what I hate is not Original Duplicate, but the common streak in you both.

          • Pincode pai continues to hallucinate – I criticize all political parties. Any honest person who has read my previous posts know this. Since ‘honesty’ is missing with some of these individuals, it is really hard to make them realize the truth. Let them continue to embarrass themselves!! smiles…

          • Original R.Pai SAYS, ” I criticize all political parties. Any honest person who has read my previous posts know this.”

            WHERE DID YOUR HONESTY GO WHEN YOU SAID “CRITICAL OF STATE BJP”, THERE BY DIFFERENTIATING THE NATIONAL BJP?

            WHY NOT CRITICIZE “BJP”, JUST LIKE OTHER PARTIES YOU NAMED?

            DO YOU MEAN TO SAY THAT THE NATIONAL BJP, OF WHICH LAND MAFIA – MINING MAFIA YEDDYURAPPA IS THE VICE PRESIDENT, OF WHICH “REDDY MATA – MODI MATA” SUSHMA SWARAJ IS THE EXTERNAL AFFAIRS MINISTER, OF WHICH RAJMATA VASUNDHARA BECOMES IPL MODI MATA; IS TO BE INSTALLED AT A DIFFERENT HIGHER PEDESTAL THAN OTHER PARTIES?

            SIR, THIS MARKS YOUR POLITICAL HYPOCRISY!

          • “WHY NOT CRITICIZE “BJP” ” – says Pincode Pai from his single-bed room in an unknown location.

            Pincode Pai’s hallucination seems to hit a new high. He is complaining about my reference to ‘state BJP’ in connection to state politics!! He wants to dictate every word I use in my post!! LOL Remember – this is the same guy who doesn’t have the courage to answer my question on cartoon controversy!! What a character!!
