Police have booked two unidentified men, who posed as police personnel, for allegedly stealing currency and jewellery from a Buddhist priest from Mongolia and his friend in Janpath Market on the pretext of checking their bags, officials said on Monday. According to the victims, they came to India on a pilgrimage tour.

The Buddhist priest — identified as Chulukhu (44) — informed police on Sunday that he and his friend arrived in Delhi from Bengaluru on Saturday and were staying in the Majnu Ka Tilla area. On Sunday, they came to Connaught Place to see Janpath Market. “Around 5pm, I was standing inside a shop buying something and my friend Sodnomdajaa was standing outside, when two men came and started questioning him. They said they were policemen and showed a card. They started checking my friend’s bag and took 100 dollars, 300 euros and jewellery worth 10,500. My friend realised that his money was missing when he checked his bag later,” Chulukhu told police in his complaint.

The two friends immediately approached a shopkeeper, who helped them call police and apprise them of the matter. A case under relevant sections of IPC was registered, and a probe is underway, said police. Chukukhu said that they have been in India for two-three weeks and do not understand Hindi, which the accused used to their advantage. “We cannot speak Hindi or English,” Chulukhu said.
