Dehra Dun: Claiming to have divine powers, a
conman duped an old woman of gold jewellery at Prince Chowk
area here after making her believe that he could turn it into
a gold idol, police said Thursday.

Mahendra Kaur (65) was waiting for a bus when a conman
asked her to hand over her gold bangles and chain to him,
stating that he had divine powers to convert the gold
jewellery into gold idols of a Goddess.

When Kaur gave him her jewellery, the man asked her to
close her eyes, and when she opened them after a few moments,
she found no one around her.

She narrated the incident to her son who lodged an FIR
with the police.

Efforts are being made to nab the man, the police said.
