Bengaluru: Fake cops steal gold, nabbed

Bengaluru: Two MNC employees managed to steal gold from a city based jeweler posing as police officers but were quickly nabbed by the police based on CCTV footage.

The accused have been identified as Kishore Kumar (24), a Human Resource manager with a smartphone manufacturer, and Savitha S (22), a BPO executive. The police have recovered fake police identity card and cell phones from them.

According to the police, the duo walked into Vimal jewelry store near Indira Gandhi Circle in JP Nagar. They demanded to see gold chains for Savitha after identifying themselves as police officers. They soon left the store after browsing through the collection.

The police said that salesman noticed that a gold chain weighing 16 g was missing. When the CCTV footage was checked, they saw that when Savitha had kept the salesmen occupied, Kishore had stolen the chain worth Rs 40000.

The duo was traced to a house in Devasandra. When the house was searched, photographs of Kishore posing as an army officer were found. Fake police identity card showed Kishore as a Superintendent of Police.

The police are questioning the duo to check their involvement in similar crimes.

  1. WOW – A 24-year old man is a Superintendent of Police? That was fake. And the report says the 22-year old woman is a BPO Executive? Really an executive at age 22? Interesting….
