Bhawanipatna: An elderly woman was allegedly duped here, after a gang of conmen escaped with gold ornaments worth Rs 2 lakh after fooling the lady.

The incident took place in Bhawanipatna city of Kalahandi district in Odisha on Friday.

 

A video of the incident went viral on social media on Saturday.

The conmen stopped Ramkali Agrawal who was on her way back to home from a temple and identified themselves as government officials.

The cheaters told her that the government had enacted a new law which forbids people from wearing gold ornaments in public places and asked her to put the ornaments in a small bag before heading home.

At first, the lady avoided them but when the cheaters again told her to follow orders by intimidating her, she obeyed.

A CCTV footage of the incident shows three conmen assisting her to take off the ornaments. In the meantime, the cheaters changed the jewellery with fake ornaments.

 

Upon reaching home, the woman checked the bag and realised that she was cheated.

An FIR was lodged at Bhawanipatana police station and the police are investigating the matter.

"I request to all people in Bhawanipatana and Kalahandi to be aware of it. You can see in the CCTV footage how they talk for around five minutes and the lady gave her ornaments by herself," Kalahandi SP B Gangadhar said.
