The city police, in an operation along with CCB police, swooped on the houses of around 250 history-sheeters across five police divisions- north, south, east, south-east and north-east- on Sunday morning. The rowdies were paraded and warned to stay away from criminal activities. According to a senior police officer, the police raided houses from Saturday night till Sunday.

The anti-rowdy squad of Central Crime Branch also swooped on the houses of 50 notorious rowdies in the city.

The officer said, “Usually, rowdies are at  home on Sundays. Hence, we planned simultaneous raids in three divisions in the morning. They were surprised to see police on their doorsteps. Weapons found in some of their houses were recovered.”

The squad led by D Devaraja, DCP (Crime),  detained 45 history-sheeters including Gurumurthy alias Balla, Arasiaha, Chand Sajjad alias Sajjad, Rama, Lakshmana, Ravikumar alias Doodh Ravi, Lokesh alias Mulama, Hateek Pasha alias Hatush, Venkatesh alias Venki, Amjad alias Chowdary Amjad and Mujahid. They were taken to the CCB office (near Chamarajpet) and were let-off after details about their recent activities were collected. They were warned not to indulge in any anti-social activities. Also, police collected their contact details to ensure that they could be reached, if needed.

In north division, a team led by S N Siddaramappa, DCP (West), raided 120 houses and took the rowdies to a nearby wedding hall and warned against indulging in anti-social activities. Weapons in their possession were seized.

Houses of 48 history-sheeters were raided in east division. The rowdies were let off after they promised not to indulge in anti-social activities. Similar raids were conducted by teams headed by DCPs T R Suresh and Dr P S Harsha.
