“When we reached Kotman village, two motorcycle-borne persons came and snatched the mobile phone from Sajan. As they were trying to flee, I raised the alarm and tried to chase them. Later, residents cornered them in the village. The mobile was recovered and the suspects were handed over to the police,” the complainant.

Investigating officer ASI Jaswant Singh said further questioning of the suspects was on to inquire about other snatching incidents committed by them in the past.
