Woman cheated out of gold bangles

A woman, Shubh Kanta Jain (76), was cheated out of her gold bangles by three car-borne women thugs in Sector 39, Moti Nagar, on Thursday morning.

The victim told the police that she was going to a school on a scooter with her son. On the way, driver of a Swift car waved her to stop saying women sitting in the car want to talk to her. “When I went close to the car, the women asked me something but I replied that I do not know you and came back.
