The woman, Rakhi Sharma, claimed that Falendra Mehto, a resident of Chakulia in Ghatshila, allegedly posed as an ACB officer and would raid houses in various areas. Mehto also showed her his fake ID to convince about his identity.
"We met him a few days ago. He used to come with women to raid houses in various areas. I also thought of working with him and sought his help to resolve my personal problem. For this, he asked me to pay Rs 50,000 for legal work. I called the ACB and learned that the person is fake as no officer can conduct raids without serving a legal notice," Sharma told ANI.
The woman then called him on the pretext of giving the money to get him arrested. Police is interrogating the man.
Meanwhile, an FIR has been registered against Falendra Mehto, a resident of Chakulia in Ghatshila for allegedly posing as an ACB officer and cheating people.
