Two young men posing as CID officers robbed four people of gold ornaments estimated at Rs. 4 lakh within three hours in Kolhapur on Sunday.

The imposters created panic among people in busy places by announcing that a murder had taken place in the nearby area and urged people to be careful about their belongings. They would then offer to help people keep their ornaments and other valuables safe. In all, they duped two men and two women in four different places of the city. They have registered complaints in the respective police stations. — Correspondent
