A court in Cuttack sentenced a man to seven years rigorous imprisonment for snatching a gold chain of a woman police officer three years ago.
Chief Judicial Magistrate-cum-Assistant Sessions Judge Haraprasad Patnaik pronounced the jail term on Friday, after finding the 23-year-old Siddheswar Kar guilty of committing the crime.
On August 13, 2016, Siddheswar Kar had snatched the gold chain of a police officer near a traffic signal, when she was travelling with another woman constable on a moped in the Cuttak, according to the prosecution.
However, Siddheswar Kar was caught by bystanders while he was trying to flee.
