HYDERABAD: Afzalgunj police, with the assistance of the Task Force sleuths, on Saturday arrested a man wanted in over 39 chain snatching cases.

Mohammed Faisal Shah Ali Jabri alias Abdullah alias Sohail, a resident of Gaji Milath Colony, Hasamabad Road in Chandrayangutta, had started snatching gold chains since 2008.

He was caught and sent to jail by the Asif Nagar police in 2008 but was granted bail.

This time, the Afzalgunj police nabbed him on February 9 during a routine vehicle checking. When questioned, Jabri confessed he was involved in 39 cases and he was produced before court. He was arrested on February 15 and gold chains weighing around 90 tolas and worth Rs 25 lakh were seized.
