STAFF REPORTER
GUWAHATI, April 26: The Paltan Bazar Police on Wednesday apprehended two alleged frauds identified as Bolvinder Singh (28) and Pranamika Pal (22) from Ajanta Path near Beltola in the city. According to police source, one Arbhash Hussain, a resident of Ulubari advertised his iPhone on OLX, an online portal for selling used items. Going through the display, the frauds contacted the owner and fixed a meeting for bargaining and final proof of the item. Accordingly, the owner invited the guests to his own residence. On the scheduled date, the buyers visited and examined the item and assured Hussain to come back later with cash. When the duo did not return, Hussain grew suspicious and then realized that the original iPhone was exchanged with a fake one and that he was befooled. Immediately, he registered an FIR at Paltan Bazar police station following which the duo were arrested.
