CHENNAI: Two policemen arrested two persons who posed as police officers and robbed a film actor at her house in Vadapalani.

Police sources said, the accused, Suresh (25) of Aminjikarai and Rajesh (27) of Arumbakkam, posing as officers, had gone to the house of Kavitharaj (21) and her mother Asha (46) in Dharam Singh Colony on the pretext of an inspection.

When Kavitharaj asked Rajesh to show his identity card, he attacked her with a knife injuring her right hand. The duo then robbed the women of Rs.20,000 and a 10-sovereign chain and left the house.

Kavitharaj called the police control, who, in turn, alerted a patrol team of two policemen near the victim’s house, sources said.

The duo, along with their accomplices Ramesh and Radhakrishnan, tried to escape.

However, Suresh and Rajesh were caught near Kumaran Colony with the gold chain after a brief pursuit, sources said. A hunt is on for their accomplices.
