Two unidentified men stole a gold chain, a ring, cash, and a mobile phone from a 55-year-old woman after scaring the woman and making her believe that wearing gold would bring her and her family bad luck.

The incident took place near Gurudwara Sahib on Gurudwara Road in Civil Lines, where she had gone to pray, the police said Sunday.

“The men tricked the woman into removing her valuables and putting them in a polythene bag saying ‘gold would bring her bad luck‘ and then snatched the bag from her,” head constable Devender, who only goes by his first name and is the investigation officer in the case, said.

The incident took place around 5pm on Thursday, with Sukhvinder Kaur, 55, a resident of Rajiv Nagar.
