Police officials said Heema Gupta, a resident of Pul Prehladpur in New Delhi, had gone to a private school in Charmwood Village in Surajkund to collect the admission form for her child.

It is reported that a man, posing himself as a CBI officer, approached Gupta and said that he was inquiring about her husband, besides asking her to sit in the car parked outside the school.

"Two women were already seated in the car. They told Gupta that an inquiry was going on against her husband, who is employed with a private bank", said investigating officer Prehlad Singh.

"The women advised Gupta to settle the matter and suggested that she hand them some cash."

In the complaint, the victim stated that she told the 'impostors' that she had no money, on which the women asked her to hand over the jewellery that she was wearing.

Police sources said Gupta thought that by handing over the jewellery, the 'impostors' would drop the inquiry against her husband.

"The victim handed over her gold jewellery, including ring, two bangles and chain. The impostors later dropped her near the other gate of Charmwood Society," the police said.

Gupta immediately called up her husband.

Police officials said though the incident took place around 4pm on September 28, the victim lodged the complaint with the Surajkund police on October 2.

"We have registered a case against the unidentified persons and launched a hunt to nab the suspects", said investigating officer Prehlad Singh.
Meanwhile, the police said they would investigate the incident thoroughly and try to nab the accused as soon as possible.
