 The cases against the duo include snatching the 3.5 sovereign chain of one Lalithambika at Nemom, 2 sovereign  chain of a woman on the Kowdiar-Kuravankonam stretch, 3.5 sovereign chain of a woman on GPO road, 2.5 sovereign  chain of a woman at Manchadimoodu and two other cases at Kowdiar and Marayamuttam.

 The bike and robbed ornaments were seized by the police.

 The investigation monitored by City Police Commissioner H Venkatesh was led by Crime Detachment AC K E Baiju and Control Room AC Bijoy. The team included Control Room CI Suresh Babu, Peroorkada CI R Suresh, Vattiyoorkavu SI Prakash, Control Room ASI Sunil Lal and Shadow Police team members Saju Kumar, Lanju Lal, Harilal, Shamnad, Sanju, Vinod, Saji and Chandrachoodan.
