A young woman was robbed by two people who introduced themselves as representatives of a chemical company proficient in making products for cleaning metals and jewelry.
Purnima Jain, resident of Inside Hathipol, was targeted by well dressed conmen. They asked her to bring any metallic object and they would show how their special chemical works.
Influenced by the imposing body language and communication skill, Purnima started acting as told by them.
According to Purnima, “They first asked me to bring brass made objects and then silver ornaments. I gave them the objects and they showed me and my neighbor how to clean it.”
“They cleaned the objects and returned back. This strengthened my trust and when they asked for my gold chain, I took it out and gave it to them” said Purnima.
The conmen were carrying a vessel that contained some liquid chemical. They used to place the metal objects and ornaments in the vessel and put it on flame. While carrying out the cleaning of brass & silver ornaments, they carried out the exercise with the lid of the vessel open. But when they got the gold chain, they asked Purnima to cover the vessel with a lid. This created doubt in her mind.
Sensing her doubt, the suspected duo took the vessel with gold chain and ran away from there.
Ghanta Ghar Police is investigating the case as per the description given by victim.
