Hyderabad: Two masked men robbed a 35-year-old woman in Jawaharnagar after sprinkling chilli powder in her eyes on Thursday night. The men took her 3.5 tola gold chain.
Police said the woman, B. Mamatha, is an employee of Sri Ram Chit Funds and is staying with her husband Naresh Reddy in Balaji Nagar. On Thursday she returned home after work at around 7.30 pm and went to the kitchen.
“Meanwhile, two men who were already in the kitchen, sprinkled chilli powder on her face, grabbed her 3.5 tola gold chain and fled. They also locked the door from the outside,” additional inspector K. Chandrakumar said. The victim said that she had forgotten to lock the rear door in the morning and said the suspects were wearing monkey cap type masks.
