In an attempt to turn Hyderabad as crime free city, the city police
have checked the houses of old criminals and rowdy-sheeters in old
city, Mehdipatnam and Musheerabad and warned them that they would be
jailed under PD Act if they resorted to crime again. Based on the Data
Base and crime record police kept their homes under vigil and also
enquired their families and their neighbours about 11,000 criminals in
all. As part of special operations cops are also trying to counsel
them with a view to controlling the crime.
