Thousands of mobile muggers take away mobiles daily from people throughout the country. Now laptops are also being snatched. The question is how do the snatchers dispose them? They must have ready buyers. The mobile and laptop markets are allegedly their buyers. Whenever the police raid these markets, shopkeepers argue that all of them are not culprits but some shopkeepers in the markets are surely the buyers. Mobile Market Associations and the Chamber Of Commerce should be taken into confidence to find out the black sheep and take action against them. The beneficiaries are clear. The government should resist pressures from market associations to resort to strikes and punish the culprits.
