JORHAT, Feb 15 - Close on the heels of two motorcycle-borne hoodlums having snatched a bag from a businessman reportedly containing Rs 3.3 lakh in the busy Nirmal-Chariali area here, two motorcycle-borne youths in a similar manner on Thursday made an abortive attempt to snatch a bag reportedly containing Rs five lakh from a hotel employee at the busy Marwari Patty locality here.

As per eyewitness account, two persons on a motorcycle sans any registration number tried to snatch the bag said to contain a cash amount of Rs five lakh from an employee of a renowned hotel at Marwari Patty at around noon.

The employee, who had withdrawn the money from a bank in the Gar-Ali area was returning to his hotel when the duo on a motorcycle attempted to snatch the bag, but remained unsuccessful as the employee resisted the bid, thereby getting dragged for some distance by the motorcycle-borne miscreants, the witness informed.

The duo after failing to snatch the bag with cash, sped away from the spot in view of the employee raising an alarm.
