HYDERABAD: Cops are known to be tough while dealing with speedsters and bike racers. But Cyberabad police are now taking a leaf out of the bad guys book to take on chain snatchers. With chain snatchers ruling the streets of Hyderabad striking terror among the women, the police are busy improving their racing skills to curb the menace.

It is said that villains, crooks and gangsters operating outside the realm of law can provide lessons of nimbleness. To catch a thief, one has to behave like one and it seems Cyberabad police have taken the saying a bit serious this time around.

The teams will challenge the racing skills of the offenders, negotiating the circuitous lanes and bylanes of the city. Determined to contain the menace, Cyberabad police have formed as many as 60 anti-snatching teams.

Cyberabad police commissioner C V Anand  convened a meeting of the team members and imparted lessons on identifying offenders, chasing a fleeing criminal and use of force including opening fire on the offender.

Assistant commissioner of police (ACP), B Kistaiah told Express that they have hired Irfan, a professional racer, to train the teams.

“The professional racer is training them to rear wheel the bike, zig-zaging and other nuances of bike racing which will come handy when they chase the offenders,” he explained.
