The men attacked them from behind, pushed their vehicle and snatched away their purse. The women were robbed of Rs 1,500 and two mobile phones worth Rs 15,000, police said.

“The incident has been captured in one of the CCTV cameras outside a hotel, but it is not very clear as the cameras are placed quite far away from the spot of the incident. When the accused first tried to snatch their purse when the women tried to resist. However, the women lost control and fell down and the accused managed to flee,” said in-charge police inspector, Fatehgunj police, J K Patel.
