Man snatches Gurugram woman’s phone, how she grabs it back will blow your mind- READ ON

Gurugram: A lady tracked down a guy who stole her phone in Sector 23, Palam Vihar on August 28, and seized it back from him after hitting him in the head, police said on Tuesday. They added that a FIR in the case was only filed on Monday and the offender is yet to be nabbed. 

Pallavi Kaushik (28), a resident of Sector 23, Palam Vihar, who works as a senior merchandiser for a city-based organisation, was grocery shopping at the Huda market in her neighbourhood around 6 p.m. on August 28. According to her, a man continued peeping over her shoulder while she paid the bill over UPI, then snatched her phone and escaped.

Pallavi then chose to follow her phone's whereabouts using her smartwatch, which continued beeping to signal that her phone was nearby. She spent almost three hours wandering the bylanes of Sector 23 until tracking the exact location of her phone about 9 PM. Finally, she found the man sitting on a parked motorbike using her phone.
