Hyderabad: Police Commissioner Anjani Kumar invoked the Preventive Detention Act against Mohammad Firdous alias ‘Shooter’ Firdous, a notorious history sheeter of Banjara Hills and Syed Arshad Bakhtiyar alias Amjad, a history sheeter from Golconda.

The Humayunnagar police executed the order on the history sheeters at the Central Prison in Chanchalguda on May 12, where they are currently lodged.

Police said Firdous and Amjad are involved in many offences including murder, attempt to murder, rioting, dacoity and extortions since 2002 in Hyderabad.

In January this year, Firdous and Amjad along with their associates had murdered one Syed Sharfuddin, 40, when the latter refused to pay ‘mamool’ to them.

The Humayunnagar police nabbed the duo in February and produced them before court, which further remanded them in judicial custody.
