Ranchi: A man and a woman, both on a bike, convinced a woman who was with her two daughters aged eight years and one-and-a-half years old that cricketer and icon MS Dhoni was "distributing cash" to the people. The woman blindly believed what she heard and asked the bikers if they could take her to the place where cash distribution was taking place.
Woman falls for the lie
The bikers happily obliged and took the woman, who along with her one-and-a-half-year-old daughter, sat on the bike to reach the centre where the so-called cash distribution was taking place, leaving her eight-year-old daughter at the stall they were standing.
Unidentified accused took her to an electricity office
However, upon reaching the electricity office in Harmu, the bikers told the woman to get down and "have a look at the place." They engaged her in talks and as her attention was swept away with the "imaginary cash" she would receive at the hands of the cricket icon as claimed by the fraudsters, they flee away with her daughter on a bike.
Police case filed
The incident took place on Tuesday (October 24). The woman has filed a complaint with the police and an investigation in the case is underway. The police are trying to ascertain if this is an isolated act or a planned conspiracy by a gang involved in kidnapping children.
