A 25-year-old man lost his gold chain worth Rs 54,000 when he dozed off at a PMPML bus stop as he fell prey to bike-borne miscreants who fled with the chain. The incident took place on Sunday night at around 11.30 pm when the victim, Ashish Patil, was waiting at the stop to board a private bus to Nashik.
“The victim works as an assistant manager with a tourism firm and was travelling to Nashik for work. He was waiting at the bus stop when he fell asleep. Two unidentified men approached him on a bike, snatched the chain and fled. Before Patil realised what had happened, they were gone,” said SS Kale, sub-inspector with Shivajinagar Police.
