Nagpur: Two miscreants posing as cops extorted Rs 35,000 from a young man with scary tactics in Sadar area here between September 26 and October 3. The two bogus cops are being hunted.

The complainant, Girish Damodhar Deoghare (27), resident of Plot No. 7, Amarjyoti Nagar, Nara, told police that the two unidentified men, aged 20-25 years, approached him posing as cops. The two fake policemen scared Girish by telling him that he was indulging in illegal activities and that his relatives will be informed about it.

With this threat, the two bogus cops forced Girish withdraw Rs 35,000 from his Axis Bank account from time to time between September 26 and October 3. However, when Girish realised that he is being duped, he lodged a complaint with Sadar police in this regard.

PSI Ghuge has registered a case under Sections 170, 384, 34 of the IPC and searching for the two bogus cops.
