Two Nigerian brothers have been robbed of $1,800 near a guest house in Sector 52, Gurugram, India.
The unnamed brothers had arrived the country for a surgery at a private hospital, two days earlier before they were robbed of their money by three persons, including a woman, Igbere TV learnt.
Police said the suspects posed as police officers and insisted on checking the currency that the two brothers were carrying.
One of the complainants told the police on Monday that they arrived Gurugram on Thursday for his brother’s urological surgery at a hospital in Sector 51.
They had booked a room at a guest house near the hospital.
The incident took place around 4.20 pm on Saturday when the victims were returning to their room after visiting the hospital.
“We were outside the guest house when a silver-coloured car stopped near us. There were two men and a woman in the car. They said they were police officials and wanted to check our passports and the currency that we were carrying,” the victim was quoted saying.
Police said that the complainant later realised that the suspects had allegedly taken $1,800 from the total cash which he had given them for checking.
Sub-inspector Mahesh Kumar said the suspects were not wearing police uniforms.
“They checked the victim’s passport and currency while sitting in the car. They posed as police officers, but were not armed. We have retrieved the CCTV footage of the incident, but the car’s registration number is not clearly visible. The suspects are yet to be arrested. Police are investigating the case,” he said.
