New Delhi, Sept 22: Three Bangladeshis, including a woman and her son, have been arrested here for robbing “rich and literate people” on the pretext of selling them US dollars, the Delhi Police said on Thursday. Mohammad Farukh, 36, Salma, 48, and her son Ujjal, 27 — all residents of Madaripur in Bangladesh — were taken into custody on Wednesday from Geeta Colony in east Delhi. A hunt is on to arrest Tultul, the gang leader. Explaining their modus operandi, Deputy Commissioner of Police Rishipal said the gang would approach potential victims with a US dollar. They operated mostly in malls and other places, targeting the rich and literate looking persons. They had on Monday robbed Kahiya Sharma, a resident of Noida, of Rs 80,000. They met him at a mall. Rishipal said the gang would pose as illiterates to gain the victim’s confidence. They would show him a dollar note and ask: “Sir, can you please tell me what this is? We found it on the ground... Is this of any value?” (IANS)
