Chain Snatching should be dealt more strictly

Recent past we all have seen increase in no. of chain snatching incidents and dareness with which these criminals are executing the crime. Majority of the cases they attack women specially older women and also men. If you see the modus operandi of the criminals they are well organised while committing the crime and is cold bloodedly performed. They keep arms/weapons to safeguard themselves. 

Main issue is, they are scot free, even if they are caught, as presently chain snatching is tried under IPC 357 or 379 or 394.

If you see the chain snatching, it is mainly on the neck of a person who is wearing the chain. Snatching in most of the cases has severely hurt the victim.

Basic question here is if someone is attacking you at neck with chain (can be considered as weapon here in particular scenario) which is threat to life, then shouldn't it be tried under attempt to murder (IPC307).

Request to Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad, Minister to Law & Justice that kindly consider the request for amending "Chain Snatching" Crime as attempt to murder. Kindly note crime is performed mercilessly, and we should not wait for these criminals to go scot free. This will give citizens and senior citizens a protective enviornment, by sending criminals behind the bar and will not allow them to make mockery of the law.
