Jaipur: Two British nationals were duped of Rs 6.8 lakh by two touts who had promised to deliver gold jewellery to them, police said.
Lee Anderson and Tina Pophof sent an email from Britain to the Jaipur Police Commissioner following which an FIR was registered last evening at the Sadar police station against Mohammed Hussain and Vicky.
