Man held for fake heist

Sanjeev Kumar, employed with building contractor Naresh in Peenya, has been arrested by the police, on charges of lodging a false complaint of robbery.

According to the Peenya police, Kumar, who schemed to  swindle, had claimed that three men had assaulted him on December 3, in Kariobanahalli, and robbed him of Rs 44,000 he was carrying.
