Hyderabad: A notorious burglar, involved in 27 cases, was arrested by the Rachakonda Police on Saturday. The police recovered 1.8 kg of gold and Rs.1.90 lakh in cash from him.
The arrested person, Gaffar Khan (28) alias Jigar, a resident of Yakutpura, moved around in colonies during the night and broke into houses.
“He used to park his motorcycle a few hundred metres away from the house and used to walk to the place. After the crime, either by removing the iron grills of the window or breaking the main door of the house, he used to steal valuables and escape,” Rachakonda Police Commissioner Mahesh M Bhagwat said.
He was involved in three cases in Rachakonda, eight in Cyberabad and 10 cases in Hyderabad. The police had invoked the PD Act against him in 2018, but after being released, he resumed burglaries and was last arrested by the Adibatla police in 2019.
Khaja Pasha, who purchased the stolen goods from Khan, was also arrested. The police recovered 10 mobile phones and a bike from him.
