Kanpur: The police here claimed to have
nabbed a gang of imposters who allegedly looted commuters on
the highway by posing as policemen.
"A truck laden with iron rods was looted by imposters
dressed in police uniforms on April 13. The driver and the
cleaner of the vehicle were asked to get down of the vehicle
and soon after they got down the looters fled with the
vehicle," SP (Rural) A K Pandey told reporters here.
However police rounded up the imposters after the truck
driver gave a description of the culprits and said the gang
moved around in two vehicles having blue beacons, Pandey said.
The master-mind of the gang Pinku alias Vijay Rajput holds
an MBA degree, he said, adding that the gang had looted
several vehicles in a similar fashion.
During interrogation the gang-members said they were all
educated but indulged in the crime as they were unemployed, he
