With a move to curb the growing rowdyism in the city, over 120 rowdy-sheeters were paraded at the CAR Grounds on Friday.
The rowdy-sheeters parade was conducted in the presence of Police Commissioner, Dr A Subramanyeshwara Rao, DCP (Crime and Traffic) N Rudramuni, DCP (Law and Order) Dr H T Shekhar and CCB ACP Gopal.
Rao, who recently announced ‘anti-rowdy’ squad to tackle rowdyism in the wake of the murder of two rowdy-sheeters, conducted a parade of rowdy-sheeters. Interacting with the rowdy-sheeters, the top cop of the city issued a stern warning to the rowdies and asked them to keep away from creating any trouble.
Later, the Police Commissioner also directed the officers to verify the records of those rowdy-sheeters who are still active in anti-social activities.
