By Tanseem Haider: Police have arrested two people, including a woman, for duping people after befriending them on dating apps. The police also recovered 8 mobile phones, 20 cards including PAN, UIDAI and debit, Rs 15,000 in cash, wallets, 18 pills and 250 grams of alprazolam powder from the possession of the accused.
The accused have been identified as Rakhi alias Kashish and Santosh Kumar Bhagat.
ROBBED MAN BUNTY-BABLI STYLE
The matter came to light when the police received a complaint on October 4 in which the complainant alleged that he befriended a girl named Kashish on an online dating platform. After talking for a while, Kashish asked her to meet, to which she agreed and met her at Neelam Chowk.
Things changed when Kashish offered a cold drink to the complainant at his house and he fell unconscious after consuming it.
That’s when he became aware, he discovered that his cell phone, cards, gold and silver jewelry that were missing from his house had been stolen. Transactions worth over 1 lakh were also made using his mobile phone. After that he tried to contact Kashish but in vain.
After a detailed investigation, police tracked down Kashish in Haryana and she was arrested from a hotel in Faridabad. He was accompanied by Santosh, who was also arrested.
In a sustained cross-examination, the duo revealed that they were inspired by the 2005 Bollywood film Bunty Aur Babli.
Rakhi told the police that she used to chat with the victims on social media platforms and then asked them to meet privately. At the meetings, he used to give the victims sedative pills and steal their belongings once they were unconscious.
He cheated more than 20 people with the same modus operandi.
