 The wife of slain soldier Lance Naik Hemraj was duped of Rs 10 lakh today in the presence of her brother-in-law and a relative near a petrol pump in the outskirts of Kosi town area.

In her complaint, Dharmvati, the widow of Hemraj said that one Amit     Kumar, who claimed that he was an Army officer and sent by the Army Headquarters, approached her at her native Shernagar village this morning.

According to the complaint, Amit advised Dharmvati to keep the relief packages provided to her in different banks.

On his advise, she agreed to withdraw Rs 20 lakh from SBI Chhatta branch.
Accompanied by brother-in-law Bhagwan Singh, uncle Gajendra Singh and Amit, Dharmvati reached the SBI Chhatta branch.

"Rs 20 lakh were withdrawn from the bank, out of which a fixed deposit of Rs 10 lakh was made in the same branch in favour of my daughter Shivani, whereas we planned to deposit the remaining Rs 10 lakh in a bank in nearby Bukharari village," she told police.
Dharmvati claimed that she was seated on Amit's motorcycle, whereas her brother-in-law and uncle were on an another motorcycle.

In the complaint, she mentioned that Rs 10 lakh were kept in Amit's bag. Thereafter, all four proceeded towards Bukharari village.

"Amit stopped his motorcycle at a petrol pump near Sonu Monu Dhaba at the outskirt of Kosi town, pretending that he had to take petrol for his bike," she said.

As Dharmvati got down from the motorcycle, Amit fled with the amount, the complaint alleged.

"The SOG has been asked to work out the case, the CCTV footage of the bank is being examined to arrest the alleged youth at the earliest," Senior Superintendent of Police Pradeep Yadav said.

"Though Dharmvati was asked to inform the police about any major financial transaction she makes in the bank for the safety of amount, she did not do so," SSP added.

On March 25, an attempt to fraudulently withdraw Rs 60 lakh, of the relief amount given to her, was made at a bank in Palwal district of Haryana.

A person in Palwal submitted two cheques of Rs 30 lakh each at a SBI branch to withdraw the money from the account of Dharmvati.

Hemraj was killed and beheaded by Pakistani troops near the Line of Control in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir on January 8.
