‘Cops’ rob trader

Amritsar, July 19

A trader identified as Ashwani Kumar was robbed by armed persons posing as cops at the Golden Temple parking flyover in broad daylight here on Monday.

The victim said the accused first assaulted him and then snatched Rs1.70 lakh, which he was going to deposit in the bank. The police have started probe and a case was being registered. Ashwani told the police that two persons signalled him to stop his car. They said they were from the CIA staff and had information that he was involved in some wrong acts. He said they asked him to meet their ‘saab’ while pointing towards a car. He said they bundled him in the car and slapped him. They snatched his money, pushed him out of the car and sped away. ADCP Harpal Singh said the police were verifying the claims and further probe was on. — TNS
