Ukraine ambassador to India, Igor Polikha’s iphone was snatched near Red Fort on Wednesday morning, while he was taking selfies.
Talking on mobile phone or taking selfie in public place are no longer a wise choice in Delhi and other NCR cities – the reason being the possibility of becoming a target of snatchers. One such incident was reported on Wednesday morning near Red Fort, where Ukraine’s ambassador to India, Igor Polikha became the victim.
“I was clicking selfies and photos near Hanuman temple at Red Fort, when two bike-borne persons, snatched my i-phone and fled. They were wearing helmets. Before I could understand anything, they had disappeared,” Polikha said.
The envoy was left helpless after the incident as he went to the area alone, leaving his driver was at some distance. Delhi Police so far have not been able to track the mobile phone and thereby the unidentified accused are absconding.
