Those arrested are Ashok alias Babru and Kumar Gosavi (23) from Hassan. Police who spotted two men lurking suspiciously  near the Hanuman Rice Mill close by the NH 66 at Tekkatte tried to apprehend them when they escaped. The police had to chase them in order to  trap them. An iron rod and exo blade was found in their possession. It was only when they were questioned that it came to light that they were the absconding under trials.

The duo were staying in some makeshift tents near railway stations or bus stands and used to note down houses where they could commit thefts by moving around in the guise of scrap  collectors.

The two were first arrested in June 2015 by the Hiriadka police.
