In the first incident, Ambika Patil, wife of Shivakumar Patil, was walking along with her friends on 10th Cross Road near Divyaroopa Kalyana Mantap in Vijayanagar, at about 5.50 pm, when a Honda Activa scooter borne miscreant managed to yank off her 30 gram gold chain and flee in a flash.
In the second incident that reportedly occurred 10 minutes later on the same road, Kamakshi, wife of one Nagesh, was walking to her friend`s house, when a scooter-borne miscreant managed to relieve her of her 25 gm chain.
