The arrested man is Thomas (48) from Salmara. Police said Thomas  always targeted  women walking  alone on the roadside  and used to snatch their chains and escape in his bike.

It has been gathered that the CCTV camera was put up   on the Peruvaje Road at the  directions of TMC Chief Officer Rayappa who wanted to keep an eye on those who dumped garbage on roadside. When  the CCTV clippings were observed  police found  a bike rider snatching the chain of a woman and escaping.

The accused  Thomas is said to be a businessman. Meanwhile, locals are unhappy with the police for not releasing the photo of the chain snatcher. They say the fact that he was a relative of a politician might have refrained the police from doing so.
