Police imposter arrested after 10 years

Lorthanath alias Sabasin (39), a resident of Medarahalli in K R Puram, was arrested on Friday for masquerading as a police  inspector and relieving people of their possessions.

Lorthanath would also accost gullible persons, bully them and confiscate their phones and other valuables. The police have recovered 25 mobile phones and other valuables. A case has been registered.
