Man duped by two pos­ing as govt of­fi­cials

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES CITY -

New Delhi: Two men have been ar­rested on Thurs­day for dup­ing a man by pos­ing as gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials and of­fer­ing a free ride. Po­lice said that they are en­quir­ing if these men were in­volved in other such in­ci­dents.

Po­lice said that they re­ceived a PCR on Wed­nes­day from a man, who was duped by three men. The com­plainant, Ban­wari, said he had re­turned from Saudi Arab af­ter sev­eral months and was wait­ing for a bus to head back home. Three men ap­proached him and struck a con­ver­sa­tion. The men told him that they are headed in the same direc- tion as him and they can drop him as they have a gov­ern­ment ve­hi­cle.

Ban­wari be­lieved them and sat in the car, and the men kept all his be­long­ings with them. How­ever, soon the men asked him to get out of the ve­hi­cle as they needed to meet an of­fi­cial and he could not be seen with them. Ban­wari got down, but soon re­alised that he has been duped. The men had fled leav­ing him there.

Po­lice said that they reg­is­tered a case un­der sec­tions 420 (pun­ish­ment for cheat­ing) and 34 (acts done by sev­eral per­sons in fur­ther­ance of com­mon in­ten­tion) of the IPC at the Delhi Cantt po­lice sta­tion and ar­rested two men.
