MUMBAI: Two men in plain clothes who claimed to be officers of Mumbai police duped an employee of a jewellery shop and took away his bag containing gold ornaments worth Rs 12.55 lakh near Grant Road in south Mumbai. The incident took place at around 6.30pm on Thursday. No arrest has been made yet.

The DB Marg police said that the complainant, Kashinath Sardar, employed with Solitaire Jewellery factory in Santacruz, was on his way to his office when the incident took place near Roxy cinema. Sardar told police that his employer had given gold ornaments to a gold designing unit in Grant Road for some new designs.

However, the designing unit informed Sardar's employer that they could not complete the designing and that they wanted to return the jewellery. Sardar was sent to collect the ornaments. "After collecting the ornaments from the Grant Road shop, Sardar was on his way back towards the Grant Road railway station to catch a train, when an unknown person approached him. The man stated that he was a policeman and questioned Sardar about the bag in the latter's mother tongue, Sindhi. Later, another man appeared who claimed to be a senior officer," the police said.

The duo asked Sardar to hand the bag over to them since they were doing some inquiry. Right after Sardar handed them the bag, they fled on a motorcycle. Sardar told police that he was too scared and could not raise an alarm since he did not suspect any foul play. After sometime Sardar realized that the bag had actually been stolen, he called up his employer who asked him to go the police station. "Sardar did not note down the registration number of the motorbike on which the accused fled from the spot. Sardar could have raised an alarm or at the least tried to question the two men. There are many policemen who patrol that area. Had Sardar questioned any of the policemen, the two men would have been arrested from the spot," said Ajit Surve, senior inspector of DB Marg police station.

Police have registered a case of theft and impersonation against the two accused. Police are also probing if some insider is involved in this case who might have tipped the accused.
