On the second consecutive day of ‘Operation Kuber’, the City Police on Monday conducted raids across the city and registered 12 cases.

 The raids were conducted at 50 places, including the residential premises of government employees. A total of 12 cases were registered against the accused. The special team under City Police Commissioner H Venkatesh seized Rs 1.13 lakh of currency and documents including cheques, promissory notes and vehicle Registration Certificates (RCs). People who were running illegal chit funds were also booked as part of the raids.

 Around Rs 1 lakh in cash was seized from the house of Jayachandran, the head jail warden of Alappuzha district jail. Besides cash, around 11 RC books, 16 title deeds and a sword were also seized from the house located near Medical College here. The raid was based on a complaint filed against Jayachandran’s illegal moneylending activities. Though police raided his house, they could not nab him since he was absconding.

 Meanwhile, police have urged the public to pass on information against loan sharks as well as government employees close to them through SMS or ‘Whatsapp’ mobile application. ‘’The whereabouts of informers will be kept under wraps,” K Padmakumar, AGDP (South) said.

Padmakumar said that cases will be registered against loan sharks under the Goonda Act. Public can call the police on 9497996991 or e-mail information to ptvm.pol@kerala.gov.in.
