The ones who escaped include the gang leaders K H Muneer Karnad residing at Dargah Road in Karnad, and Hiyach Karnad who are currently on the run. The cops are on the look out to capture them.

two Royal Enfield motorbikes, a Tata pickup truck, Bajaj Pulsar motor bike, a Toyota Fortuner car which reportedly was stolen from Goa and three high end cell phones were recovered from the thieves. Apparently, the accused were using the Tata pickup truck and pulsar motor bike for their thefts.

Under interrogation, the police realized that the thieves were involved with several cases where houses and Daivasthanas were burgled and in thefts reported from Kadike, Santhekatte and other places.

The operation was conducted under the directions of city police commissioner, Sandeep Patil, and guidance of deputy commissioners of police, Hanumantharaya and Laxmi Ganesh, and Panambur assistant commissioner of police, Srinivas Gowda.
