Bengaluru: Two use fake gun to rob women on trains, held | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: Two miscreants were arrested by Bengaluru City railway police recently for allegedly robbing women passengers of their gold ornaments. Unaware that the robbers were threatening them with a fake gun, the women parted with their chains.
Ravi Singh, 28, from Bihar and Sandeep, 26, from Uttar Pradesh targeted passengers on trains that stopped at the outer signal between the railway station and Seshadripuram railway bridge for track clearance. Police have recovered three chains worth Rs 3 lakh and a toy gun from the duo. “They would point the ‘gun’ at the head of the women and demand valuables,” an officer said.
They committed robberies on August 22, 25 and 29. The first incident took place between 8.50pm and 8.55pm on a Tirupati-Bengaluru special train. Poornima of Kumaraswamy Layout was returning to the city from Vellore along with her three children, when the duo fled with her chain worth Rs 88,000.
The duo robbed Minal Sudam Kshatriya of Doddabanasawadi of her chain worth Rs 60,000 between 8.30am and 8.45am on August 25 on Kochuveli-Mysuru special train. A mother of a 11-month-old baby aboard Kacheguda Bengaluru special train was their third victim at the same spot. Mamatha Devi of Talakunda, Tamil Nadu, was on her way to Mysuru from Kacheguda. They fled with her gold chain worth Rs 1.5 lakh.
