Cops fan out to nab chain-snatchers

Around six teams from the Central Crime Branch (CCB) and the City police have fanned out across the State to track those involved in the recent spree of chain-snatchings in the City.

A senior police officer said, “Four teams from the CCB and two teams from the West Division have been sent to various places in the State. We have a few vital pieces of information about the possible hideouts of the miscreants and they have been sent to those places.”

“As of now, there are no arrests, but a few people involved in earlier incidents of chain-snatchings are being questioned. The police are also checking the previous records of the people belonging to the Irani gang. People from the gang, who were arrested earlier, are being questioned. The police will also visit the Irani settlements and question people there,” he added.

He said the City police were working with their counterparts in the neighbouring states to hunt down the people involved in the offence. “It is a difficult task to trace the miscreants.

First, we have to confirm if the recent chain-snatching incidents were the handiwork of the Irani gang or other gangs,” said the officer. Bengaluru Commissioner of Police M N Reddi said, “Vital clues about the miscreants are available and they will be arrested soon. More details cannot be revealed in the interest of the investigation.”
