Five Bangladeshis, who promised to sell US dollars cheap and then robbed their victims, have been arrested, police said on Tuesday.

While Sheera, 25, Hannan, 30, Suleman, 35, Salma, 35 and Bally, 22, have been taken into custody, their leader, Nargish, is still at large.

Police said a south Delhi shopkeeper was told by Nargish that 1,170 notes of 20 dollar denomination had been found in a dustbin near an embassy. The shopkeeper agreed to pay Rs1 lakh for the US currency. But when he reached Ashok Nagar, he was robbed of his cash.
