Division DSP Sitaram on Tuesday conducted cordon and search operation at Vaddera colony of Chitkul village in Patancheru mandal. The police force included 15 CIs, 20 SIs and 170 police personnel. The operation was conducted in the presence of Sangareddy SP Chandrashekhar Reddy.
Police confiscated 160 vehicles and 14 persons with criminal records during the operation. Taking advantage of lack of vigil, many organised syndicates were involved in inter-state drug peddling, ganja smuggling and other illegal activities in the area. “Seldom do the higher officials visit the areas as these are far away from the police stations.
We have identified some repeat offenders by authenticating fingerprints with the central criminal database using scanners, SP Chandrasekhar Reddy said. “We also alerted the local people to cross check original identity documents with the Aadhaar details while renting rooms to non-locals”, he added
