Thane: An autorickshaw driver was arrested for allegedly abetting the snatching of a woman’s gold chain in the city, police said today.
The woman was walking along a road near Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) headquarters yesterday at around 7.30 PM when a person travelling in an autorickshaw alighted from the vehicle, snatched her chain and ran away, they said.
