Delhi Police have arrested four persons, including a woman, for allegedly duping a Haryana resident of Rs 6.5 lakh on the pretext of getting his money exchanged.
DCP (southeast district) Romil Baaniya said the accused have been identified as Hitesh Kumar Verma, Charan Dass, Nasir Khan and Damanjit. “We have recovered Rs 4.04 lakh from their possession. Verma earlier worked as a goldsmith and was currently under heavy debt. All of them were in dire need of money,” he said.
Baaniya said that on November 14, the complainant, Sachin Bharadwaj, informed police that he had been cheated of Rs 6.5 lakh.
“Bharadwaj told police that he gave the accused Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes and was handed a bag purportedly containing Rs 100 notes,” the DCP said, adding that later, when Bharadwaj checked the bag, he discovered that each wad of currency had only one Rs 100 note at the top.
“Damanjit had conveyed to the complainant through her father that she can get the old notes exchanged,” the DCP said.
