A group of criminals comprising men and women has become active in the city and it is looting people in the name of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s Scheme.
An FIR No 75/14 has been registered against them with Nazimabad police station by a female victim, Musmat Zainab, on Thursday. The police have become alert to bust the gang. The complainant reported that two women introduced them as the prime ministers’ scheme representatives and told that Rs 3 million would be given under that scheme to the poor. For that reason, they asked her for some bribe money and a bank guarantee.
“I told them that I did not have the money but they suggested me to hand them over my jewellery as a mortgage to bank which would be returned to her later,” she said.
She further told that when she handed over her jewellery to the accused, they fled away in a car with their male accomplices. Police, after registering an FIR, have extended their inquiry to the entire city.
