Kori’s is the first restaurant in Guwahati to serve authentic Korean food. The state excise department has initiated strict action against Kori’s restaurant for illegally selling foreign liquor.

In another horrific incident, Two miscreants snatched a gold necklace from a woman’s neck in broad daylight in the Kahilipara area of Guwahati. The incident was captured by a nearby CCTV camera. According to the footage, two bike-riding men chased the victim, robbed her of her chain and then escaped on their bikes. The Odalpakra Police are currently investigating the case.
The police have stated that the miscreants arrived on a single bike, scouted the area and selected the ideal location for the crime. It was easy for them to escape after the crime, as the area is remote and few people visit it at this time. This incident has added to the increasing number of chain snatching cases in the city.
Earlier in January, the Guwahati Police had detained two suspected chain snatchers who allegedly threatened women with guns while committing the crime. The snatchers threatened the woman with a toy pistol during the crime. Following a police check, a toy firearm was found on the suspects, Rajiv Ali and Raju, who were subsequently detained in the Lachit Nagar neighborhood of Guwahati.
The preference for women as targets by chain-snatchers has created fear among the female population. While the police are taking action against these criminals, the number of chain-snatching cases is increasing day by day. The situation calls for greater vigilance and security measures in the city to protect women from such incidents.
The incident once again highlights the need for better security measures and greater public awareness about safety in public spaces. The police and the authorities need to take stronger action to tackle the growing issue of chain snatching and provide a safe environment for citizens. It is important for people to remain alert and cautious while moving in public spaces, especially in isolated areas, and to report any suspicious activity to the authorities immediately.
