Man duped by two posing as govt officials
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.
