The Cyberabad police have booked four notorious offenders including one member of the ‘Snake gang’ under Preventive Detention Act. Cyberabad commissioner C V Anand on Thursday informed that these four notorious offenders were involved in as many as 863 offenses including chain snatchings. "In order to create a sense of security among public, especially women, the police have cracked the whip on un-social elements from acting in any prejudicial manner,” he said.

The offenders have been identified as M Jagadeesh alias Jaggu and Mahender Singh Chowda, both aged 28, Asgar Ali aged 21 and Khadar Barakba aged 25. The commissioner said that Jagadeesh, a resident of Saroornagar, was involved in 126 criminal offenses since 2012. He was also a member of a gang started by another offender Shiva (now deceased). Similarly, another offender Mahender, who worked as a home guard in Cyberabad, had committed 36 criminal cases.

Being an employee of the police department, he created panic among public and endangered their lives, the CP said. Ali from Dabeerpura was involved in 18 chain snatching offenses in Cyberabad. He was arrested by the Pahadishareef police in 2013 and came out on bail. After getting bail, he again started committing offenses, the commissioner said. Another notorious offender Khadar, a realtor and member of the ‘Snake gang’ had committed rape, dacoity, made attempts of murder and kidnap and was also involved in land grabbing.

"There is a possibility that these persons may further commit offenses after their release and hence PD Act is invoked on them to curb their prejudicial activities,” commissioner Anand said.
