Chennai City Police Commissioner says they won’t put up with rowdiness; four of the twenty history sheeters were detained

Chennai City Police Commissioner Sandeep Rai Rathore met with media on Friday, two days after police detained 17 men—three of whom were history sheeters—from a hotel in Thirumangalam. He said that his department does not tolerate misbehavior or the carrying of firearms.

In the previous two days, the Central Crime Branch (CCB) Gangster Team and the Serious Crime Squad of the municipal police have apprehended twenty persons in total, including four history sheeters. The suspects were found in possession of five automobiles, 84 ammunition, 11 knives, an air rifle, a handgun, a double-barrel gun, and four pistols.

“On Wednesday, we apprehended 17 males from a Thirumangalam eatery on a tip. They carried knives and firearms produced in the nation. The accused admitted to a conspiracy to assassinate one of their rivals during questioning. Four of the seventeen are well-known criminals. We also discovered that Thambirajan, who had lived in Bihar for five years, was the gang’s source for weaponry. Teams have been sent to track out the source of the weaponry,” Rathore said.

The three people whose arrest history sheeters were recognized as A Muthukumar alias Madan (30) of Tirunelveli, T Chockalingam alias Suresh (24) of Tirunelveli, and R Jayabal (63) of Arakkonam. The three were charged under the Goondas Act after it was said that they killed history-sheeter Arcot Suresh in August 2023. The first week of March marked their release from jail. They have also apprehended M Prasanna (31), who was connected to these history-sheeters.

On Thursday, the police apprehended T Vasanth David (29), T Selva Bharathy (26), and D Thambirajan alias Raj Prakash Godwin alias Rajkumar (57) based on the information given by the persons who were detained.

Rathore said, “We have a list of history sheeters and a team is monitoring their activities through a mobile application called Parunthu,” when questioned about how to stop unruly elements before the Lok Sabha elections.
