Delhi Police have arrested two persons who used to cheat traders by posing as CBI and Sales Tax officials. Police said the arrested duo — Kishan Lal, 62, and Rajender Kumar, 40, along with another associate used to pose as CBI personnel and take away cash and other items during search.
Lal is involved in 24 cases while Rajender is involved in nine cases. On May 9, the trio had cheated a trader from Jammu and Kashmir Manzoor Ahmad Dar near Shish Ganj Gurudwara in Chandni Chowk.
“Lal and Kumar had stopped the trader posing as CBI officers and asked him to get his luggage searched. They took him to Meena Bazar in an auto, took out Rs.25,000 from him and started checking the notes,” Sanjay Kumar Jain, DCP (crime) said.
“After that, they handed him the yellow envelope and told him that his currency notes are original and then fled,” a senior police officer said.
