Mangaluru: Unidentified bike-riders snatched a bag containing cash from a pedestrian on Bijai cross road on early Monday morning.
Shekhabba (66) had arrived from Moodbidri in connection with his son’s visa and marriage proposal.
As he could not find the broker who he wanted to meet in Bijai, he was on his way back to catch a bus to Moodbidri.
Two strangers came in a bike, snatched the bag from his hand and sped away. A case has been registered at the Urwa police station.
It is suspected that persons who were aware that he carried money from home trailed him and caught him unawares while walking alone.
