According to locals, the gang is notorious for cattle smuggling and other illegal activities. They were caught transporting truckloads of cattle without valid documents in the past by police but due to some mysterious reasons, they were always let go.

People allege that the gang is smuggling cattle under the nose of local police and they have the support of some politicians.

The gang has a strong network of cattle thieves who brings stolen cows to them, who in turn sell them to the slaughterhouses. They also lift cows during the night, especially the stray cows that roam the streets.
