Mysuru: In a broad daylight robbery, miscreants, posing as Policemen, relieved a man from Nanjangud of 35-gm gold jewellery and a Rado watch after diverting his attention near JSS Hospital on M.G. Road this morning.
Gopal, 40, a businessman from Nanjangud, who had come to the city on some work, was travelling on his motorcycle at about 9.30 am when he was intercepted near the Hospital by two persons posing as Cops.
Gopal then stopped his vehicle, when one among the two, said to be speaking in Hindi, asked him to be cautious of robbers. Even as Gopal turned his attention towards something, the duo relieved him of his 35 gm gold including a finger ring and chain apart from a Rado watch and sped away in a motorcycle that was parked a few feet away from the spot, it is learnt.
K.R. Police, who rushed to the spot, conducted mahazar and registered a case. City Police Commissioner K.T. Balakrishna and other top Police officials too visited the spot.
