It is to mention here that the State police sounded an alert after six chain-snatching incidents within two hours in Hyderabad on Saturday. The chain-snatching gang went berserk by committing offenses at different places in Secunderabad on Saturday morning.
The offenses were reported between 6.20 am and 8.10 am. Two chain snatchings were reported at Uppal and one each at Nacharam, Chikalguda, Ramgopalpet, and Osmania University, sending the police into a tizzy.
Following the incidents, police in all three police commissioners (Hyderabad, Secunderabad, and Rachakonda) sounded an alert. Police suspect that an inter-state gang from Delhi may be involved in the crimes.
As the offenders are likely to escape to Delhi, police stepped up vigil at airports, railway stations, and bus stations. Police also launched vehicle checks to catch the offenders. A vehicle used by chain snatchers in Secunderabad was found in the Paradise area.
Ramgopalpet police seized the vehicle. Police are scanning the CCTV footage of the incidents. Images of two suspects were captured on CCTV in one of the incidents.

The two cases were registered at the Uppal police station of Rachakonda Commissionerate.
Around 7.10 am, the gang snatched the chain of another woman at Nagendra Nagar under the Nacharam police station of Rachakonda Commissionerate. About 30 minutes later, the gang snatched the chain of another woman at Ravindra Nagar under the Osmania University police station of Hyderabad Commissionerate. Two more incidents were near Ramalayam Gundu under the Chilkalguda police station and another under Ramgopalpet police station limits.
I could never wrap my head around Bollywood’s obsession with continuously addressing condom as a chhatri or an umbrella. Not only it’s cringe to hear repeatedly but also, it somewhere defeats the whole purpose with which films around these subjects are made. Moreover, picking a taboo subject and making a film on it can turn out to be quite risky if you don’t stick to the agenda and beat around the bush. Thankfully, Rakul Preet Singh’s Chhatriwali, directed by Tejas Prabhaa Vijay Deoskar, doesn’t digress much, and follows a crisp screenplay. There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
