HYDERABAD: Five persons who were involved in over 200 cases of cattle theft, illegal transportion and sale to abattoirs were arrested by Hyderabad Task Force police on Friday. Police seized a four-wheeler used to transport the cattle. 


This is the second such case of gangs involved in cattle thefts from the city. Recently, Cyberabad police have apprehended a gang involved in 40 cases. Police on Friday arrested Md Ayub, Md Baba, Md Haji,  Md Ayub Qureshi and Mohd Isaq. Another accused, Saddam, is absconding. DCP Limba Reddy said Ayub, leader of the gang, is involved in about 200 cases and 17 non-bailable warrants (NBW) are pending against him. 


The accused steal cows, buffaloes and calves from cattle sheds and also stray animals and transport them in  the four-wheeler. The vehicle is modified by removing the seats. 
After stealing the cattle, they would sell them to butchers at throwaway prices and share the money, Limba Reddy said.


On a tip-off, police intercepted the vehicle and caught the accused. The accused, along with the recovered property, were handed over to the Madhapur police.
