Sangrur, October 20

The police have arrested four persons for allegedly impersonating as income tax (IT) officials and duping a Bhawanigarh family of cash and gold ornaments. Raids are on to arrest other suspects involved in the crime.

SSP Vivek Sheel Son said the suspects, posing as IT officials, “raided” the residence of Krishan Kohli in Bhawanigarh on October 16 and took away cash, gold ornaments and silver.

“A police team arrested Sewa Ram, Baldev Singh, Jaspal and Manoj near Roshanwala and recovered Rs 3.80 lakh in cash, gold ornaments weighing 272 gm, silver and a .32 bore pistol,” said the SSP.

The team also seized two vehicles, including Innova and Brezza cars. The suspects apparently got inspired from a Bollywood movie. Further investigations were under way, the SSP added.
