The senior officers from Dadar police station formed a team to visit a residential society nearby. They raided a flat and found the accused with laptops and mobile phones. We seized one laptop and 20 mobile phones worth R1.5 lakh. These people are well aware that police regularly visit hotels, and if they operate from any hotel, they will be on the police's radar. So, they were operating from a residential society."
