Anti-Theft Clothing

Anti-Theft Clothing Searching for a way to reduce the problem of chain snatching, police in Mysore are encouraging women to wear neck scarves and high-neck jackets to conceal their mangalasutra and gold chains. They displayed the clothing at a police station and invited women to take a look.

“I strongly believe that the measure will work and minimize the incidents, as the offenders cannot be sure whether their targets are wearing gold chains,” Commissioner of Police K.L. Sudheer told The Hindu.

Perhaps he’s right, but just to be sure, he might want to send a memo to all the criminals: if it’s a hot day and you spot a woman in a high-neck jacket, don’t assume she’s wearing a chain.
