A robbery that has shaken the residents of an apartment complex in Hyderabad shows the workings of the "chudidar gang", much like the "chaddi-baniyan gang". Members of this gang dress up in traditional clothes and cover themselves from head to toe while attempting to rob people so that no one can recognise them. Recently, two people from this gang broke into the home of Venkateshwar Rao, a resident of Hyderabad, living at Akriti Arcade Apartments in JEC Colony, as per reports.
