Alarmed by the chain-snatching cases in the twin-city, SP Dr Mahesh Patil deputed a local crime branch team to conduct investigations and nab the culprits who had created panic, especially among women.

A team led by police inspector Vyenkat Andhale and assistant police inspector Pramod Badakh, under the supervision of additional SP Prashant Kadam intensified the vigil and activated their network of informers. Along with this, they also took the help of CCTV cameras for analysing the pattern of the movements of the bike-borne chain snatchers and noted their schedule and the interval between consecutive incidents.

“A few personnel began questioning the victims and reconstructing the sequence of events, while others scanned the CCTV footage collected from the areas around the spots where the incidents had occurred,” said Kadam.

With the help of cyber police officials, the hazy CCTV images of the bikers were developed, which helped the officials in finding the registration number of the Bajaj Pulsar bike used in the crime.
