Snatcher tears woman’s ear lobes in Delhi, she walks to hospital as no one helps

Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya:  Man tore the ear lobes of a 47-year-old woman while pulling out her gold earrings on a busy road in west Delhi, leaving her grievously injured and in need of plastic surgery. Incident happened near Uttam Nagar (east) Metro station at around 6 pm on Tuesday, when Vandana Sharma, who lives nearby, was returning home from a relative’s funeral in north Delhi’s Shakti Nagar.

Robber’s escape was captured by a CCTV camera installed nearby, but he remains unidentified as the footage only showed his back, said Santosh Kumar Meena, additional deputy commissioner of police (Dwarka district). Police figures show that snatching and robberies in the city dipped in 2017, compared to the previous year, snatchers have been turning violent of late.
