Jammu, Dec 21 (UNI) The Jammu and Kashmir police busted a gang of chain snatchers and arrested three people in this connection late last night, official sources here said today.
Three people were arrested by the police for looting and snatching 'gold chains' and ornaments here. ''The gang was active in isolated places or during the dark. On seeing a woman alone, they used to strike with covered faces and flee after snatching the gold ornaments,'' sources told UNI.
However, last night, they struck in the city area while one of the members of the gang was caught by the locals when they chased them and handed him over to the police.
''During interrogation, he revealed the names of his accomplice, who were arrested by the police after a surprise raid,'' sources said adding that gold chains were recovered from their possession and they also confessed that they had looted a woman in another locality on the same day.
A case has been registered against them and investigations are on as more arrests are expected, sources said.
