Cunning Gang’s Fake Gold Scheme Foiled by Crime Branch Unit One
In a blow to a cunning gang’s fraudulent activities, the Crime Branch Unit One has successfully apprehended three individuals and seized valuables worth ₹2 lakh. The gang had been deceiving city residents with a fake gold scheme, swindling them out of lakhs of rupees.
The arrested suspects, identified as Kesharam Pita Sawaram from Sanchor, Rajasthan, Babubhai Lumbaji Marwadi from Gujarat, and Ramesh Kumar Dargaram from Jalore, Rajasthan, were part of a larger gang comprising 10 to 15 people. They had set up camp in the Tavali Fata area for several days.
The gang’s modus operandi involved approaching a sweet seller in the city and claiming to have discovered gold ornaments while digging. To gain the seller’s trust, they requested two gold beads for verification. Upon inspection, the beads appeared genuine, leading the confectioner to exchange jewellery worth ₹20,000. Unfortunately, the items turned out to be fake.
Taking swift action, the Crime Branch Unit One set a trap and apprehended the three suspects. A case has been registered against them at the Satpur police station, and an ongoing investigation is underway. In a concerning turn of events, two more individuals have reported similar complaints of being defrauded of ₹3 lakh, prompting further police inquiries.
The successful operation was carried out by a dedicated team from the Crime Branch Unit One, led by Police Inspector Vijay Dhamal. Their efforts highlight the importance of remaining vigilant in the face of such scams, ensuring the safety and financial security of the city’s residents.
This incident took place in an area known as Tavali Fata, emphasizing the need for increased awareness and caution among local residents.
