HYDERABAD: City Police on Thursday appealed to the people to be careful about persons claiming themselves as jewellery polishers.

In the past one week several cases of tricksters approaching housewives in the guise of polishing jewellery and taking away the ornaments were reported in the city. Claiming as jewellery polishers, the cheats first cleanse silver articles using some chemical to win over the confidence of the women.

Later, they steal the jewellery by diverting attention of the unsuspecting women and flee. Detective Department DCP R.S. Praveen Kumar on Thursday appealed not to allow strangers inside the house. In case of any suspicious characters, the public can reach the police by ringing 100 or contact the near-by police station.
