The modus operandi followed by the gang was that the six would travel in trains from West to East India. At every station, they used to buy sim-cards and mobiles on fake documents. With a fair knowledge of technology, the sim-cards and mobiles were destroyed after committing a crime in a particular city.
Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Naunihal Sinsgh said, "the verification of all the crimes that the gang had committed will be a long process. We will have to send teams to different places and get in-touch with the local police of all the areas that will be identified. We are suspecting their involvement in more than a hundred cases".
"The gang of six had been arrested only once till date that too in a minor case of assault", said the SSP. The gang has also been involved in thefts is trains like Shatabdi Express, Rajdhani Express, Kanchanjanga Kamru and Awad Express etc. The UT police has established that it is not the first time that they were planning a theft in Chandigarh. A case was registered against them in March involving a snatching of Rs 80, 000.
