Imposters nabbed for posing as cops
Two private detectives posing as police officials of the Special Cell of Delhi Police were arrested for extorting money in East Delhi’s Kalyanpuri area. The two accused have been identified as Laxmi <g data-gr-id="15">Naryan</g> and Vakil Khan.
The incident dates back to July 7 when the two, dressed in safari suits, and carrying walkie talkies went to a liquor shop of DSIIDC at Block-1, Trilok Puri. They threatened the manager, Ram Chander, that he will be implicated in a case if he did not pay them Rs 50,000. Collecting money from his friends, the manager paid them the amount. The accused had allegedly produced identity cards like those of the Delhi Police. Later on August 26, the duo again visited the liquor shop and asked Ram Chander to pay Rs 50,000 as one month had passed.
An amount of Rs 19,000, a carton of liquor bottles, a <g data-gr-id="17">walkie talkie</g>, and <g data-gr-id="19">wagon-R</g> car was recovered from their possession. Both the accused worked in National Investigation Bureau (NIB), a private agency.
