Chennai: In a rare show of courage, a 26-year-old woman – a yoga trainer – on Tuesday evening managed to pin down a youth who snatched her chain in front of her house in Thillai Ganga nagar, near Nanganallur. Ragini Madhavan not only chased the chain-snatcher but also pulled him down from his bike while he was trying to flee.
As the youth, who received couple of tight slaps from her, offered to return her 11-sovereign chain, other members of the public gathered and overpowered him before handing him over to the Adambakkam police station. The police later identified the youth as Verghese of Bengaluru. “He speaks all south Indian languages fluently. We have to check if he has any criminal history,” the police said.
Ragini Madhavan had returned home in her two-wheeler after her grocery shopping when the incident happened. “She had parked her two-wheeler just outside the gate and was taking out the grocery items when the youth, who acted as if he was attending a call on his mobile, suddenly snatched her chain and started running towards his bike, parked 50 metres away,” the police said, quoting the would-be victim.
Ragini Madhavan chased him and as he was trying to start the bike, she grabbed his shirt and pulled him down. As soon as he was down on the ground, he offered to return the chain and pleaded for mercy. While she slapped him, others who gathered around had thrashed him before informing the police.
“We are trying to find out if he was involved in similar crimes in the same neighbourhood as there was another snatching incident that was reported in the morning in Nanganallur,” the police said.
