Ajmer: A young person working for a private company was stolen Rs 1 lakh by two men pretending to be police officers. The crime took place on Monday in the Kekri police jurisdiction in Ajmer, Rajasthan.
According to details of the case shared by police, Ram Arora, a resident of Sarwar, is employed as a treasury management executive in a private company. On Monday, he went to Lodha Chowk in Kekri to collect money from a businessman. Two men stopped him at Junia Gate as he was on his way to the bus stop.
The men, dressed in civilian clothes, pretended to be police officers and told her they had to check her bag as they searched for suspects. Arora protested, however, after which the two men showed her police ID cards.
According to a report published by The time of India, the accused then took out the polybag containing the cash. The employee of the private company told them about the collection, after which they returned the polybag and left. Later, when Arora checked the bag, he discovered that the money was missing.
A case related to the crime was filed at the Kekri Sadar police station. Police scanned CCTV footage of the area and focused on the suspects. The case is under investigation.
