The Kranti Chowk police successfully apprehended an individual posing as a policeman, with the assistance of hawkers at the Central Bus Stand (CBS) on Monday.

In the afternoon, a fake policeman arrived at CBS wearing khaki pants and a jacket adorned with the Maharashtra police logo. Approaching hawker Rahul Rubel Massi (24, Christnagar, Cantonment), the imposter claimed to be a policeman from Kranti Chowk police station. He informed Rahul that a criminal from Ahmednagar, identifiable by the letter ‘S’ on his bag, was en route to the city by bus. The fake policeman instructed Rahul to immediately report any sightings of this criminal on his mobile phone. Subsequently, the imposter repeated his fabricated story to other hawkers, accompanied by threats, and shared his mobile number.
