‘Police has begun state crackdown against gangs’
Mumbai: Maharashtra Home Minister RR Patil said here Wednesday that the police has begun a state-wide crackdown against gangs involved in chain-snatching and house-breaking.
"The police has begun a state-wide crackdown against gangs involved in chain snatching and house breaking," he told reporters.
Such crimes are supposed to be "easy" in nature and therefore they are mostly committed by non-history sheeters, mostly from other districts of the state, he said.
"After robberies are committed in the city, stolen goods are sold in other parts of the state," he said.
He also admitted that there has been an increase in chain snatching cases in the city, which the police is trying to curb.
His ministry has ordered a state-wide investigation in the wake of daylight robberies in Pune, Nashik, Nagpur and Aurangabad, he said.
