Hyderabad (Telangana) [India], January 17 (ANI): Hyderabad Police has arrested a six-member gang of inter-state house burglars and recovered several items worth Rs 35 lakhs from their possessions.

Anjani Kumar, Hyderabad Police Commissioner, on Saturday said, "A six-member gang of inter-state house burglars was arrested on Friday. They were involved in 26 property offences."

The seized items include 23 motorcycles, gold ornaments ring, silver ornaments, a laptop and three mobile phones, Kumar added.

Prime accused Abdul Sameer (25) was previously involved in murder and robbery cases, police said. Wajeed, another accused in the case, is a Class 10 dropout and a native of Karnataka who shifted to Hyderabad for employment in 2019. He joined a private company and worked here for a few months.

After committing the theft, the stolen bikes and property were sent to Bidar, Karimnagar and Nizamabad for disposal.
