In an effort to build a proper data base of criminals, the Cyberabad police started the field verification of criminals in all the 181 sectors of its 44 Law & Order Police Stations.
Since 2009, 24,707 property offenders have been arrested by Cyberabad Police in all types of property offences ranging from Dacoity to Ordinary thefts. Out of these, only 9,192 were found to be residents of Cyberabad jurisdiction while the remaining are from Hyderabad and other districts of TS and other States of India.
For instance, out of 960 chain snatchers arrested since 2009, only 92 are of Cyberabad, 321 are residents of Hyderabad city, 330 are residents of Ranga Reddy district. Therefore, there is a lack of proper supervision over property offenders due to jurisdictional problems. Now, it was decided to conduct these intensive surveys and share data with each other so as to keep a watch over the criminals by opening suspect sheets.
After spending the entire last week on segregating the data and also data received from Hyderabad City about Cyberabad criminals, sector-wise and forming of teams, Cyberabad Police Commissioner C.V. Anand launched the Survey by visiting Hafeezpet area of Miyapur Police Station and personally filling out the criminals personal Data form which runs into two. One Gonepally Sriniavs, 30, of H.No.4-41, Premnagar, New Hafeezpet and Syed Asad, 25, of H.No.4/542, Premnagar, New Hafeezpet. Their fingerprints were also collected and fresh photographs taken. Suspect sheets will be opened to keep a watch. The form contains details of all relatives of the offender and other Identity card details like Aadhaar, PAN, Ration card and so on. The physical verification will go on till November. The CP, Jt.CP and DCPs will make surprise visits to find out if the exercise has been carried out in true spirit by SHOs/Sector SIs.
Later, the Cyberabad CP visited the eatery started by Cyberabad Police for the rehabitation of notorious House Breaking offender M. Naresh, who is now self sufficient and earning Rs 1500 per day and given up crime totally.
