A housewife has been duped of 60 g of gold including her mangalsutra by two persons who visited her house posing as salesmen of a polishing powder for ornaments. The duo reportedly asked Uma Manjunath Tembadmani of Radhakrishna Nagar on Gokul Road to apply a white powder on the ornaments and pretended to put the gold in a box. They asked her to open it after heating it for 20 minutes. When Uma opened the box, her gold was missing. — Staff Correspondent
