  • Iran Woman Arrested For Allegedly Looting Shopkeeper Of 50,000 In UP

An Iranian woman was arrested for allegedly looting a shopkeeper of Rs. 50,000 in cash, police said Tuesday.


The woman, along with her accomplices, had fled with a bundle of notes after offering to exchange notes of lower denomination with that of higher denomination, they said.


The incident took place in Kanpur Dehat.


ASP Anoop Kumar said a case had been registered against the accused, identified as Samira Bodaghizadeh (28), a resident of Tehran.


"Samira, along with her other persons, suspected to be Iranians, walked into Maharaj Singh''s shop on Bela Road at Nehru Nagar in Rasoolabad. They offered to exchange notes of Rs. 200 with that of Rs. 500. They snatched a bundle of notes from the shopkeeper and fled," Anoop Kumar said.


Samira was caught by local residents and taken to the Rasoolabad police station for investigation while her accomplices managed to flee with the money.
