PUNE A 64-year-old retired judge living in Pune was duped of 90,000 while trying to sell his old furniture on a web platform.

The man, who worked in Satara until retirement, had posted an advertisement to sell his old table and chairs in order to buy new ones, according to the police.

The man got a call from a person who claimed to be interested in the furniture on August 3 when the complainant was at home. When a deal was struck, one of them sent a link to him.
