On Thursday, the four robbers made way to the house in West Delhi and presented fake ID cards, posing as I-T Officials and told the family that they will conduct a search and 'seize' cash. In this process, the four took about Rs 48 lakhs from the family, with a signature from a member and asked them to come to the office within two days with proof of the money.
The cons even took the CCTV footage of the house! They said they needed it to know who had been visiting the house. However, the police had a look at the nearby CCTV footage and spotted a suspicious car, which led them to the thieves.
While half of the money has made its way back, the police are positive that the other two accomplices will also be captured soon!
