Following complaints that a few non-Tamil speaking men are snatching money and jewels in the guise of checking the vehicles, Mambalam police registered a case on Sunday.
Speaking to DT Next, a police official said that the men can’t be Iranians as they have incorporated all their data in the face-detection technology installed in T Nagar.
“If they belonged to Iranian gang, we would have received an alert as soon as they entered the jurisdiction.
The special team will nab the accused soon,” the officer said.
