New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Sunday claimed that they have arrested three members of Irani gang of cheaters, who used to cheat bank customers inside banks.
The arrest was made near Pacific Mall on December 1. The police identified the accused as Abdul Razak (38), Abbas Ali (29) and Ali Islami. Deputy Commissioner of Police (West) Monika Bharadwaj claimed that on November 15, complainant Sunil Mahto reported in Khyala police station that he had withdrawn Rs 96,000 from the bank in Raghubir Nagar.
While he was counting the notes, a person informed him that the notes are fake. Another person who was also present there took the currency notes from him for checking and he went to the cashier. In the meantime, they both fled from there and on checking, he noticed that they have duped him Rs 42,000.
The arrest was made on December 1 when three persons were intercepted near Pacific Mall on a scooty. "On interrogation, it was revealed that Abdul Razzaq is the leader of the group which operates all over India and after committing the offence in one state for several days, they proceed to next state," said the DCP.
She further claimed that they have unique modus operandi. They would roam near cash counters and keep an eye on customers who visit banks to deposit or withdraw cash.
They would inform their target that some notes are fake and take the cash in their hand on the pretext of checking. In the meanwhile, they would hide some notes in their palm and return the remaining cash.
