Nagpur: In yet another incident of its kind, two fake policemen tricked and robbed a 58-year old woman, an employee of Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) of her gold ornaments worth Rs 45,000. The two bogus cops are being searched.
The victim Nirmala Ramchandra Sakhre (58), resident of New Indora, behind Jetwan Bouddha Vihar, is working in NMC’s Asinagar Zone Office.
