Hyderabad: A local court in Shadnagar sentenced a six-member robbery gang to seven years of rigorous imprisonment (RI) here on Friday.
The convicted gang members were S Raghupathi alias Raghu, V Raju, V Murugesh, D Ravi, V Narasimha and V Chinna Babu, all residents of Jadcherla. It was in November 2018 that the gang broke into Amith Cotton Mills Company at Bhurgul village in Shadnagar for stealing theft of wires and other material.
Security personnel at the company, Anjith and Bikash, saw the gang and tried to catch them. The gang assaulted the guards with iron rods, leaving them grievously injured, and fled the spot. The gang was subsequently arrested by the Shadnagar police.
