Tribune News Service

Mohali, November 11

The Mohali police have arrested three persons for duping several delivery men of an online shopping platform by replacing the original articles with fake ones.

The suspects have been identified as Ajay Pokhar, Nishant Narang, both residents of Fatehabad, and Naveen Kumar, a resident of Dariyapur village. The suspects were nabbed near the JCT chowk, Industrial Area, Phase 7, last night, said the police. The police have recovered nine airpods, one dongle, 54 SIM cards, four soap bars, three watches and four sealed parcels from their possession.

The suspects were produced before a local court today which sent them to three-day police remand.

The suspects used to place orders for mobile phones online by providing fake addresses. On getting a call from the delivery man, they would call him in an open space and change the parcel with their fake articles, placed already in their vehicle.

The in charge of police post at Industrial Area, Phase 8-B, ASI Avtar Singh, said: "One of the suspects used to keep the delivery man busy in talk while the others would replace the parcel in the car. They returned the parcel to the delivery man by saying that they did not have enough money to make payment." The suspects had duped several delivery men in Delhi and Sonepat. They had moved to the tricity around a fortnight ago, said the ASI.
