DCP Dutta Nalawade of Crime Branch said that the master mind of this gang is Shakir Haider Shaikh alias Guddu(47) who is a Bangladeshi citizen. Guddu and his associates have been arrested by the police from Jalna. The arrested accused had committed house breaking in a house in Jalna, after which they were arrested.

This gang has revealed 18 house breaking incidents in Mumbai, 3 in Bhusalwal-Jalna, 13 in Nizamabad, Telangana, 7 in Hyderabad, 4 in Gujarat-Ahmedabad and 7 in West Bengal.

Guddu has been sentenced in four cases, non-bailable warrant has been issued against him in 8 cases and bailable warrant has been issued against him in 1 case.

A police officer said that Guddu, who is the leader of this gang, came to India by crossing the border in the year 2005 and was living in Mumbra. He was arrested by Mumbai Police in a theft case and was bail out from jail in 2019.

Whenever Guddu used to steal, he used to take the stolen goods to Bangladesh and sell them. To make the gang bigger, he brought his acquaintances from Bangladesh to India and started stealing with their help.

DCP Nalawade told that Guddu used to go from one city to another by flight and used to stay in some cheap lodge. During this time he used to do recce there. After doing the recce, he used to call his other associates there and then commit the theft. Guddu used to keep 80 percent of the value of the stolen goods for himself and distributed the rest among his associates.

Guddu has married twice, one of his wives lives in Bangladesh and the other in Mumbra, Thane. Guddu used to sell the stolen goods in Bangladesh where the price of gold there is higher than in India.

Out of the arrested accused, 5 accused are citizens of Bangladesh and the remaining two accused are said to be Indian citizens.
