Covai Post Network

In a daring act, a gang of four masked men snatched a chain, weighing six sovereign, from a points-woman at the Cholaganpatti Railway Station in Thanjavur district early this morning and escaped after attacking both the victim and the station master with wooden logs.

Kirubhavathi, wife of Kamaraj and resident of Indira Nagar in Thiruverumbur in Tiruchi district was on night duty when the miscreants arrived there in two motorcycles around 2 a.m. They attempted to snatch Kirubhavathi’s chain brandishing knife and wooden logs. As she resisted and raised an alarm, the station master, Panchanathan, came out of his room.

On seeing him, the gangsters attacked both Panchanathan and Kirubhavathi with wooden logs and escaped after snatching her chain.

Panchanathan sustained bleeding injuries on his head, nose and left forearm while Kirubhavathi sustained scratches and bulges. Subsequently, they were admitted to the Ponmalai Railway Hospital. The Thanjavur Railway Police have registered a case.
