Woman’s Chain Snatched in Husband’s Presence in Bokkapatna

Mangaluru: It was yet another shocking incident when a woman’s gold chain was snatched by helmet-wearing bike-rider in the heart of the city on Friday.

It was all the more surprising that it happened while being accompanied by her husband.


Lakshmi (57), a resident of Karkala, had arrived in the city with her husband Shivaraya Shettigar three days ago at a relative’s house.

As she was walking with him to offer prayers in the Veerabhadreshwara and Mahammayi temples in Bokkapatna, a man riding a bike with a helmet on, suddenly arrived and snatched her chain away.

A complaint has been filed at the Barke police station.
