Two cheats who duped several people on the pretext of offering

genuine US dollars in exchange of their Indian currency have been arrested from Shahdra district.

Later, when a bigger transaction would be made, they would replace the notes with detergent powder and flee with the Indian currency.

According to police, the case came to light when one Vasheem Alvi reported on February 10 that he met a person, Raju, who offered US 20 dollars for his Indian currency. Alvi agreed to the exchange and later, Raju offered him 1,134 notes of US 20 dollars for a price of Rs 2 lakh.
