To energize in the fresh air Thane residents are often seen taking morning walks. But there’s a threat as chain snatchers are on increasing number in morning according to Police.

Women and senior citizens are often seen wearing gold ornaments while taking morning walks.

The main targeted areas by the chain snatchers in Thane are Upvan Lake, Vasant Vihar, Kopri 12 bungalows, Ghodbunder road and Balkum; as these areas have large number of morning walkers.
