Dacoits strike on city outskirts

By Our Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD, MARCH 28. A five-member dacoit gang struck at Singicherla village on city outskirts in the wee hours of Sunday and decamped with property worth Rs. 70,000, besides inflicting knife injuries on the house owner, Chenchaiah, vehicle driver of a private firm. Chenchaiah's pregnant wife, Hyamavathi, was left dazed after one of the dacoits hit her with a stick. She was, however, out of danger.

The modus operandi of the gang - breaking open the house door by hitting with huge boulders -- was similar to that of the notorious `Khanjar Bhat dacoit gang' arrested by the Cyberabad police five days ago. "We are suspecting involvement of Parthi gang which adopts the same modus operandi," the Nacharam Sub-Inspector, A. Sattaiah, said.

At around 2.30 a.m., Chenchaiah's close relative, Anasuya, heard somebody knocking on the door. Even as she woke up inmates, the dacoits broke into the house and began to beat up them. Chenchaiah resisted the intruders but in vain. He sustained bleeding injuries on hands when he held the knife whipped out by a dacoit.

The dacoits collected Rs. 10,000 in cash and took away 10 tolas of gold ornaments before confining the inmates to a room.
