HYDERABAD: The South Zone police detained as many as 295 youngsters for moving on the streets under suspicious circumstances during operation Chabutra last night. The police provided counselling to the youngsters in the presence of their parents and let them off. In order to prevent untoward incidents, the South Zone police conducted the operation from 1 am to 3 am. Police intercepted around 295 youths including five minors from the entire South Zone who were roaming the streets and sitting at Chabutras’ of Old City without any purpose and causing disturbance to the common public.
The Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) V Satyanarayana said that they conducted such operation to not disturb or cause any inconvenience to the public and to make the youth alert and make them not to indulge in road accidents with their daredevil bike stunts at late nights. “A majority of parents of youngsters are working in Gulf countries due to which they cannot look after their children’s daily activities. Usually, parents send money to their children for their daily needs which are misused by them due to lack of guidance. We have warned the youth not to indulge in any illegal activities. If anyone is caught roaming at late night again, we will not hesitate in registering cases,’’ the DCP said.
