Hyderabad: The Commissioner’s Task Force (North) team caught a three-member gang of mobile phone snatchers who were involved in four cases in the city. The police recovered four mobile phones and a motorcycle from them.
Acting on a tip off, the police caught Jakkula Vamshi (21), Jakkula John (22) and Pujari Yesoab (19) who were involved in four snatching cases in Mahankali and Gopalapuram police stations.
