An elderly woman was targeted by chain snatchers around Tambaram

On Thursday evening, senior citizens Sankareswari and her husband Arjunan were sitting in the portico of their house on New Colony 16th Street, Chromepet. Two men arrived outside their house on a motorcycle. While one of them waited outside, the other entered their house and walked towards the flight of steps. The senior citizens assumed the stranger was on his way to one of their tenants’ portions. The stranger then turned back, snatched two gold chains Sankareswari was wearing and jumped on the waiting motorcycle and the duo sped away. The gold chains weighed 14 and 7 sovereigns respectively.
