Two Assamese men who had come to Mumbai in the hope of finding a job were robbed of their identity documents and were also duped of Rs. 2,000 by two unidentified persons posing as CID officers. On Saturday, these men were approached by two unidentified persons under the pretext of checking details for National Register of Citizens (NRC) at Crawford market near CST station, Mumbai.

The complainant Mohamed Rehman (24) said he wanted to go to Kuwait for a job, for which he had come to Mumbai with his friend. Describing the incident, he said, “We told them we had come from Assam, following which, they asked us for our NRC cards. As we our new in the city, we were scared and couldn’t show anything. They then starting insisting and even asked us if we were Bangladeshi nationals”.

“On finding Rs 8,450 in their bags, they raised suspicion that the notes were counterfeit and asked them to go in an office nearby,” an officer said. “They threatened to arrested them, after which, Rehman agreed to go with them while the friend stood outside with their bags.”

They were then taken to an isolated location and asked them to produce their ID documents such as Aadhaar card, PAN card and also took away their ATM card. Sometime later the complainant received a message saying Rs. 2,000 was withdrawn from his account. The police have registered a case of cheating and robbery.
