Bhayandar : An unidentified man claiming to be a civic personnel allegedly duped a person of Rs. 20,000 cash which he had come to deposit towards property tax dues of his employer at the administrative building of the Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC) on Monday.
Maangilal was waiting outside the computerised ‘Citizen Facilitation Center’ to deposit the cash when he was approached by a person who claimed to be a MBMC personnel.
Under the pretext of helping him out the accused walked away with the cash which he said was deposited on the first floor.
Realising that he was duped, Mangilal approached civic officials who informed the police about the case.
However, due to unknown reasons, the complainant was yet to register an FIR in this context.
The MBMC has recently installed a network of CCTV cameras in the administrative building and the cops were hopeful of getting a breakthrough on the basis of footages.
