MAHABUBNAGAR: The district police arrested a fake-Naxalite gang on Thursday. Two toy pistols, two cell phones, one Indica car, some gold ornaments and Rs 3.67 lakh cash were recovered from the members.

Additional Superintendent of Police Satyanarayana said the thirteen-member gang was headed by Peddaraju Srinivas (26), a native of Panjugula village in Kalwakurthy mandal.

Police held nine members and the remaining are absconding.

The ASP said the cell phones used by the members of the gang had been instrumental in nabbing them. The gang was involved in committing five offences since Dec 2005.

All the gangsters hail from villages located in Naxalite-infested areas in the district, he added.
