Hyderabad: Like in the movie Khakee, a team of Banjara Hills camped in Bihar for a month to crack a sensational burglary in their area on December 8, 2019. The team succeeded in arresting four members of the inter-state gang and nabbed its leader on Wednesday.

Police suspect the gang consists of around 20 members and operates throughout India. “The gang travels by train and reaches the targeted city. It then zeroes in on residences in posh residential areas. One of the gang members joins as a cook, driver or watchman at the house. At an opportune moment, they decamp with valuables and vanish. The gang has been operating since 2005,” said A.R. Srinivas, joint commissioner of police (west zone). The gang got notoriety as it kills anybody who intervenes in the burglary. One such instance happened in Chennai.

 

On December 8, 2019, the gang made away with gold and diamond ornaments worth `1.5 crore when inmates of a house in Banjara Hills had gone out for a day. Forty-five days prior to it, kingpin of the gang Ramashish Muk-hiya had joined the house as a cook. He was waiting for an opportunity to steal. The opportunity came on December 8 and Mukhiya summoned his gang to the house for the burglary.

Next day, when the inmates reached home, they found it ransacked, with diamond and gold ornaments missing from the house. They looked for their cook but he was missing  along with his belongings. Following this, house owner Kapil Gupta approached Ba-njara Hills police and lodged a complaint.

 

“Investigators ana-lysed the CCTV footage and identified that six persons were involved in the crime. They traced one of the gangsters Bhola Muk-hiya, who acted as mi-ddleman and recommended Mukhiya as a cook. After committing the burglary, all the accused left for Bihar,” said police commissioner Anjani Kumar.

The investigating team led by K. Ravi Kumar collected all details of crimes committed by the gang throughout India. The team then went to Bihar and stayed there for a month while keeping a tab on movements of the accused. The team was successful in nabbing three of the accused Mukhiya, Harishchandra Mukhiya, Bhagavat Mukhiya on January 12.
