Berhampur: Busting a major chain-snatching racket, the Berhampur Sadar police arrested four looters and produced them before court today.
The cops also seized a country-made pistol, five gold chains, two motor-cycles, a knife and two kgs silver ornaments from their possessions.
Briefing mediapersons, Berhampur Superintendent of Police (SP) Pinak Mishra said, “A series of snatching cases have been reported in the Berhampur police district for the last one month. Five cases were lodged at Berhampur Sadar, BN Pur, Golanthara and Gopalpur police stations. The four accused were earlier arrested in several cases and later released from jail on bail.”
He further said, “We are investigating the case from other angles and have identified a few more persons associated with the gang. They are absconding. Efforts are on to nab them soon.”
