CoP rewards two personnel for nabbing snatcher
City Police Commissioner AK Viswanathan on Wednesday rewarded two police personnel, attached to Kundrathur police station, for nabbing a mobile phone snatcher when the latter tried to escape after committing an offence.
Head constable B Murugan and Home Guard volunteer M Sam Jeyaraj were on a night patrol in Tirumudivakkam on Tuesday when they tried to stop three men on a two-wheeler. As they refused to stop, the personnel chased the trio. Sensing trouble, the gang abandoned the two-wheeler and ran away.
However, the police personnel managed to secure one of them, who was later identified as Anthony Raj (22) of Pammal, and seized a mobile phone from him.
Further investigations revealed that they had snatched the phone from a person in the same locality. Police also noted that Anthony Raj is a repeat offender with robbery cases pending against him.
Appreciating the effort by police personnel, the Commissioner rewarded them at his office on Wednesday.
