A 23-year-old woman was injured after two men on a scooter dragged her on the road for nearly 150 metres while trying to snatch her phone at a busy street in northwest Delhi’s Shalimar Bagh on Thursday evening. The incident was captured by CCTV cameras, and the footage was shared on social media.
The woman, who works as a nursing attendant with a private hospital, was admitted to a nearby hospital from where she was discharged after medical attention later in the night.

She was walking on the roadside when the pillion rider tried to snatch her phone. The woman caught the pillion rider by his jacket. The man who was riding the scooter accelerated the vehicle in a bid to escape from the incident spot.
However, the woman did not lose her grip and fell on the road due to the sudden jerk. The snatchers continued riding the scooter at a high speed because of which the woman was dragged on the road.
What Happened To The 2 Phone Snatchers?
The snatchers took the wrong carriageway after crossing the road intersection, where they had snatched the woman’s phone. The CCTV footage shows that the woman lost her grip on the wrong carriageway and fell on the road just next to a four-wheeler that was coming from the opposite direction.
She could have suffered serious injuries or was run over by the four-wheeler had she fallen in front of it. The snatchers managed to flee. Some passersby helped the injured woman and admitted her to the hospital, the police said.
