Woman held for duping jeweller in Mumbai


Mumbai (PTI):

A 39-year-old woman has been arrested by Mumbai police for allegedly duping a city-based jeweller of gold worth Rs 43,000, an official said on Sunday.

Sana Sheikh, a housewife, went to the jeweller's shop in Byculla area of south Mumbai last month and managed to cleverly take away some gold ornaments, valued at Rs 43,000, without his knowledge, he said.

Later, when the jeweller, Deepak Rathod, found some ornaments missing, he checked his shop's CCTV footage in which a burqa-clad woman was seen taking away the precious metal items, the police official said.

The jeweller lodged a complaint, and after an extensive search, the police nabbed the woman on Saturday, he said.

The woman has been booked under relevant Indian Penal Code Sections, including 420 (cheating), and the police are trying to find out if she committed similar offences earlier also, he added. (PTI)
