According to Lavakumar, the son of Chinnamma, a person who came to their house introduced himself to be a police constable and said that her two sons - Lavakumar and Kushakumar have been arrested by the police. He told the gullible woman that it requires money to get released her two sons. When Chinnamma said that she had no money, the impersonator asked her to part with jewellery which she had worn threatening of dire consequences.
Chinnamma, fearing for consequences gave two gold chains and two bangles to him. City Police have registered a case and investigations are on.
