NAVI MUM­BAI: The Khan­desh­war po­lice booked three uniden­ti­fied peo­ple on Fri­day, who al­legedly robbed a se­nior citizen from Khanda Colony of cash and jew­ellery worth Rs56,000.

Mac­chi­gal Raghu­ra­man, 68, a res­i­dent of Lake View CHS was rid­ing his two-wheeler on Tues­day, when he was stopped by the three on the road. “One of the ac­cused in­tro­duced him­self as the lo­cal cor­po­ra­tor, Raju Patil, and asked him where he was go­ing,” said Vikash Surya­van­shi, sub-in­spec­tor.

The three asked how much cash he had with him. They also wanted to see the gold rings he was wear­ing. Within a few min­utes, they took the cash and the rings and sped away in a bike. No ar­rest has been made.

“The vic­tim reg­is­tered an FIR. When we asked him why didn’t he shout for help, he was un­able to re­ply. We think the sus­pects had hyp­no­tised him,” Surya­van­shi said.
