Octogenarian duped of Rs 30K, gold bangle

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, January 13

Two fraudsters duped an 82-year-old Sector 33 resident of Rs30,000 and a gold bangle by impersonating as friends of his son.

According to the police, the complainant, Gurnam Singh Gill, reported that he was at his house when a young boy came and told him that he was his son’s friend. The other suspect was waiting outside in a Honda City car bearing a Delhi number.

The suspect befooled the complainant by claiming that complainant’s son has asked for money and some jewellery. The complainant gave Rs30,000 and a gold bangle following which the suspect left. While the suspect was leaving, the complainant’s son also reached there and questioned the suspect, who replied that he had come to meet Gurnam.

The two suspects then escaped from the spot.

The police were informed about the incident following which a case under Sections 406 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code was registered at the Sector 34 police station and an investigation has been initiated into it.
