Of the gangs busted, some were found to have come from Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Also, many of the gang members were women. It has come to light that their arrival at the event was well-planned, a senior official said today.
Police registered around 70 FIRs under IPC section 379 (theft) and a few under section 392 (robbery) which is applied in cases of chain snatching, the official said. The gangs targeted not only visitors, including several from foreign nations, but also the makeshift stalls which were set up inside the premises.
