Puri: Two miscreants posing as police personnel allegedly looted gold ornaments from two women after identifying themselves as police personnel in CS College Square in Puri district today.
The victims were identified as Vinodini Nayak and Urmila Nayak.
According to sources, the duo was walking along the road when the bike-borne miscreants waylaid them. Claiming themselves as policemen, they asked the women to take off their gold chain and keep in safe custody, warning them of the presence of looters in the area.
