Crime Branch arrest duo who duped people with fake dollars
The Crime Branch has arrested two men who duped several people by offering them several US dollar notes packed with papers and offer them to unsuspecting victims for a price.
The accused identified as Rahim Sheikh and Ajruddin were arrested from Nangloi on Thursday.
According to a senior police official, the accused have so far been found involved in six cases of cheating with a similar modus operandi.
The accused would show genuine dollar notes to unsuspecting victims and convince them that they had found a stack of such notes.
Later, the accused would hand over a packet containing the US dollar notes and stack up the rest of the bundle with bundles of papers and soap cake, police said.
Furthermore, the police have recovered 105 US Dollar notes in different
denominations along with bundles of paper and a soap cake.
The accused also revealed the names of their associates during their interrogation. They informed the police that the gang was run by one person identified as Imran and his girl friend-Kajol.
Since the accused would use fake aliases and change their sim card after every victim, the police still have not rounded up the remaining accused and efforts are on to identify them, police added.
