We've had no reports from TA members (yet) this season of any handbag snatchers but we've all got to be wary.

We were told by a guest staying at the Taj in Benaulim that some girls had their bags snatched by bike riders in the lane between Jacks Corner and the Taj a couple of weeks ago.

After reading all the bag snatching posts on here I also never carry a bag anywhere but it's always good to keep posting warnings.
