A group of mobile snatchers had no idea that targeting Ritu, Rashi and Sheetal-three hockey champions from Delhi University would prove to be a costly affair.The three girls chased two criminals for nearly a kilometre,caught one of them and thrashed him until he handed over the snatched mobile phone.

The incident was reported on 20th January 2016 when the three girls were travelling to Peeragrahi in a public bus¬†they had boarded at Punjabi Bagh.”When we reached Madipur, I got up to buy tickets from the conductor. One of the youths then came near Rashi and snatched her phone,” Ritu told Times of India.

“Before we could react, the driver shut the gates.When we asked him to open it, he said the bus will only stop at the next stand,” Ritu told Times of India.

The girls got off at the next stand and walked back to the Madipur bus stop.They saw the snatchers waiting at a bus stand on the opposite side of the road. “When we walked up to them,one of them started running away. Sheetal chased and caught the other. She is a half back and can chase her opponents well in a hockey game,” Rashi told Times of India.

Police have found the youth,Dalchand,to be an active snatcher in the area. “Efforts are being made to track down his associates. We have rewarded the three girls for their valour and bravery. They will be portrayed as role models for others,” DCP (west) Vijay Kumar told Times of India.
