Bengaluru: A notorious rowdy-sheeter in possession of deadly arms was arrested by the police after a dramatic chase in east Bengaluru’s Shivajinagar. The rowdy-sheeter, Syed Mazar alias Baccha Mazar, 30, was arrested on April 19 following confirmed leads. Mazar had arrived in a residential area in Shivajinagar on a two-wheeler, armed with a billhook machete and a knife.

Investigators reported that Mazar was threatening the people living in the vicinity, leveraging his notorious background with involvement in 17 criminal cases, including murders and attempted murders. He had been absconding for the last four years.
