Tripura man posing as IPS officer arrested

Kolkata: A person was arrested from Kolkata’s Salt Lake area for posing as an IPS officer and extorting money from people, the police said on Sunday. Debraj Mazumdar, was arrested late Saturday night from Salt Lake Sector One area by Bidhannagar Police, a senior police officer said adding that Debraj was on their radar for long for his past records.
“We had specific inputs that he had been extorting money from people. Since he was earlier arrested on similar charges, we had an idea of his mode of operation. Based on specific inputs he was arrested on Saturday night,” the official of Bidhannagar police said.
Posing as an IPS officer with Delhi Police, Mazumdar, originally from Agartala, was leading a flashy life and whenever he had a financial crunch arm-twisted others to extort money, the officer said. Debraj, who was staying alone at the EC Block in Salt Lake, was arrested from a hotel on Marquis Street early this year after he denied paying bills after dinner. (PTI)
