    The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough – Rabindranath Tagore. Just like a butterfly, the innovation of Organised Crime operators work on moments than months to commit their white-collar crimes.
    The forgotten Polymath who wrote the National Anthem of India has become one of the key elements for my new research called “Theory of Polymath Organised Crime (Copyright 2017)”. My intensive experimentation in the past four years on my previous "Theory of Modern Chakravyuh" (Copyright 2013) was meant for the grassroot operations of Organised Crime with or without the presence of Criminal & Victim, whereas, with the new theory I will be able to evaluate the mastermind of organised crime beyond the limitations of Jurisdictions & Language Barriers.
    A Combination of theoretical study of Lord Krishna, Dr. Ambedkar, Rabindranath Tagore have been incorporated with the Open System Interconnection (OSI) Model to make the formulated structure against Organised Crime to run under auto-mode.

    The Theory is hereby formulated for tackling Polymath experts who are the controllers of Organised Crime which are popularly known as the Mastermind of Organised Crime while the Theory of Modern Chakravyuh was designed for managing the data-collection of Organised Crime at the grassroot level.

  • Asian Age: Special Task force sought for organised crime
    THE ASIAN AGE. Published : Jan 13, 2017, 5:53 am IST Updated : Jan 13, 2017, 6:52 am IST
    The petition has based its assumptions on its study on growing impact of organised crime that is going unchecked nationwide.
    According to Snehil Dhall, who has filed the petition through Advocate Mareesh Sahay, virtual crime in India is increasing at a rapid rate. “The central government has made many laws like the TADA, MCOCA, UNTOC, FATF, UAPA, OCIS, GCOCA and OCIU but the police is ill-prepared to deal with these cases.
    As there are no special units to deal with cases that come under the purview of the above mentioned legislations, such crimes are growing unabated,” said Dhall, (27), who is a criminologist based in Mumbai.
    The petition lists a number of cases like money laundering by international organisations in the name of youth groups, conversion of terrorist groups into a legitimate trans national government structure and crimes committed through virtual platforms.

  • Criminologist Snehil Dhall on the psychology of crime
    Mid-day; Gitanjali Chandrasekharan; Pic/Nimesh Dave; 10th April 2016; http://www.mid-day.com/articles/criminologist-snehil-dhall-on-the-psychology-of-crime/17119184
    Exclusive Interview: Evidence comes later. Criminologist Snehil Dhall says the first step towards solving a case is to penetrate the criminal’s mind.
    Snehil Dhall doesn't come across as the sort of man who practices creating an air of mystery about him. His T-shirt carries the name of his company. "Due to a foot injury, I can't wear formal shoes and all that goes along with the shoes I am wearing is a pair of denims and a T-shirt. But, if I wear a regular T-shirt, I will appear even younger than I am. The Crimeophobia logo helps me look older," he says, digging to a puff he has ordered at the café we meet.
    Through the hour-and-a-half that we talk, the criminologist is careful not to reveal anything that may give a clue about his age — not the year of graduation nor when he solved his first case when he was in his early teens.
    Dhall says he takes on cases only when his clients have tried all other sources of help — police, law, politicians — and failed. He is quite literate about the law, but he doesn't claim to know it all.

    PHILIP VARGHESE spoke to SNEHIL DHALL about crime, crimeophobia, policing and a whole lot more... Excerpts.

  • Doc cheats medial goods supplier, police files civil complaint
    Afternoon DC; http://www.afternoondc.in/city-news/doc-cheats-medical-goods-supplier-police-files-civil-complaint/article_143440
    “The hospital which was located at posh area of Juhu near Mithibai College had few notices pasted by banks as well for non-payments. Initially the billing of the patients was done by the hospital management. However, since the management was not clearing the dues the supply was stopped. However, I continued to provide medical products directly at the operation theatre to the patients admitted at the hospital on humanitarian grounds since I supplied products used mainly in operation surgery. During the course of time Dr. Rajul continued to keep me in confidence that my dues would be paid. However, later they claimed bankruptcy and shut the hospital. I along with my brother filed complaints at MIDC Police Station and Juhu Police Station. However, both the cases were initially shut down. With unknown reasons given by P.I. S Jadhav of MIDC Police for closure, the case was reopened only after I approached criminologist Snehil Dhall who sent them a notice. However, this time again they transferred the case to Juhu Police Station without reason.” - Yadav Shetty (Victim)
    The case is being evaluated by Snehil Dhall – a well-known criminologist, who told the ADC, “The easiest way to earn quick money is by not paying crores of rupees and converting criminal intentions into civil that allows police to reject cases of recovery. With a dramatic strategy of organised crime in the city, Yadav was cheated by Dr. Rajul Meswani and his team. The Juhu Police Station claimed that Dr. Rajul has mentioned in his statement that he doesn’t know who 'Shetty' is and has never carried any transactions with me. However, he claims that the cheques given to Yadav were security cheques which bounced due to sudden deposit by Yadav.”

Later, Prabhakar started sending legal notices with contained confidential data of Shree Sati Travel Pvt. Ltd. which stopped only after I intervened.
