Trader tricked into buying brass at rate of gold
BHOPAL: A trader was tricked into buying a piece of brass at the rate of gold in state capital. A forgery case was reported at Habibganj police station on Wednesday.
Two people called Mukesh Gupta, 35, and said they had found a gold brick weighing around half a kilogram while working in fields. They convinced Gupta for buying it at a cheap rate, telling him that the government may take it from them otherwise.
The Duo met Gupta and showed him the 'gold brick'. Gupta agreed to buy only 200 grams and paid Rs 40,000 for the same. However, when Gupta got the 'gold brick' checked later, it was found to be of brass. A few suspects have been rounded up and it is believed that the duo may be a part of racket involved in similar incidents.
