Bengaluru: A fake policeman diverted the attention of a 59-year-old woman and escaped with her gold chain, weighing 40 grams, in Channasandra in Raja Rajeshwarinagar police station limits on Saturday evening.

Madhumathi, a resident of Channasandra, was returning home from a vegetable shop. A man approached her and introduced himself as a policeman.

 

“He reportedly told the woman that numerous incidents of chain snatching were reported in the locality and it was not safe to wear gold chains. Then he asked her to give the chain so that he could wrap it in paper and it would be safe. The woman did not realise that she was being conned and gave him the chain. The miscreant acted as if he wrapped it in paper and returned it to her. When she reached home and checked, there was no gold chain. She immediately rushed to the police station and filed a compliant,” the police said.
