The special squad, which investigates temple thefts in the State, will now look into cheating cases too, Director-General of Police (DGP) Jacob Punnoose has said.

Addressing a review meeting of the Temple Theft Squad at the Kerala Police Academy here on Friday, he said that of late, cheating cases had outnumbered theft cases in the State.

The special squad had arrested 220 persons in various cases since its formation after the Triprayar temple theft in 2008.
