Just this month two of my friends got robbed of their cell phones. I think these guys moved from chain snatching to mobile phone stealing now.
The first person got their mobile phone stolen in a rickshaw by a beggar, where one beggar came and distracted the person and the other stole the phone.
The second guy was driving his car with windows down, when he slowed down due to traffic this dude came up and told him he drove over his feet and started an argument and got him distracted while his accomplice snatched his phone lying on dashboard and ran off.
Both the people had brand new nokia nseries phones.
Please be careful with your phones.
