Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (JD)

Udupi, Oct 22: Police arrested four members belonging to the infamous Irani gang from the city. The arrested are identified as Zakhir Hussain (26), Kambar Rahim Mirza (32), Akshay Sanjaya Gosavi (22), and Shaharuk Bande Nawaz Sheikh (24).

The gang would target lonely women walking on roads and threaten them claiming to be from the police department. Then they would ask them to remove their jewellery stating it was not safe due to miscreants ahead of their road and recommend keeping them in their bags, meanwhile looting them.

 

 

 

The gang used cars and bikes for the loot. It is said that two would arrive in a bike, loot them and then proceed towards the car parked a little further where they would change their apparels, and drive the car while those two in the car would take the bike to escape being caught or recognized by people.

The gang was already booked in Udupi town, Kundapur, Chikkamagaluru, Bantwal, and Urwa in Mangaluru and four cases were registered under Vijayapura police station limits.

The police seized 12 gram gold chain stolen from Mangaluru, a bike, a car, two helmets, and Rs 5,100 from the gang. As much as 65 gram gold which was sold in Srirampura, Ahmed Nagar, was also seized. The total value of the seized items is worth Rs 7 lac.

The team was led by SP Vishnuvardhan N, ASP Kumarachandra, DySp T R Jai Shankar, DCIB inspector Manjappa D R, DCIB ASI Ravichandra, and ASI DCIB staffs Ramu Hegde, Chandra Shetty, Santhosh Kunder, Suresh, Raghavendra Uppunda, Rajkumar, Dayanand Prabhu, Shivanand Poojary, and Raghavendra were part of the team.

The sold ornaments were seized by Saktivelu, Udupi town PSI, Sadashiva Gavaroji, Kundapur PSI, and staffs Riyaz, Lokesh, Sudhakar, ASI Kundapur Santhosh and Manjunath were part of the team.

    Are they Irani Citizens ? or someone like Boman Irani (Iranian Parsis who fleed Iran to protect their culture from islamic invasion)
    Anyways ..robbers know that collaborative work will yield desired results..
    But if you talk to society about collaboration and growth ..we feel jealous and ego undermines our growth.
    Glad to hear cops have nabbed these thieves.

    Iranis also dare to do crimes in BJP country. They know nothing will happen in 'democrazy'. In their own country their hands would have been separated from their body!

    Irani gang from which country? Are they from our own country ? Why they are called as iranis? These people were looting since last year going to villages and interior places of dk and udupi. Before they were engaged in selling of mattresses... Public became aware and complained in the police stations..... Better not to wear any jewellry when days are really bad...

    k b r mngala uru forgot African or Nigerian gang??All outsider gangs are feeling very homely by us.

    Only our people outside should when caught have to suffer in jail.Why these people are not punished each time when caught ?Either send them back to their original land whoever they are after finishing their jail punishment.Or are they too pay some money to police?Otherside our women too should understand that dont show your richness by wearing your gala jewellery when going to shopping.

    These Iranis are into Robbery and Nigerians are into Drug peddling. Home department is totally a failure in handling these foreign nationals living in India. Crimes in Capital Bangalore is ruled by these two nationalities!

    Ha Ha Ha,, I am amused with how they have named their gang 'Irani''. Once again I call these guys to stop equating themselves with Middle Eastern origin people. There these people are not considered real. Great scholars Muhammad Al Arifi says it all .
