Money changer deprived of cash.

HYDERABAD -- An owner of a money exchange company was robbed of millions of rupees in a robbery allegedly committed by dacoits wearing police uniforms in the limits of Hatri police station here late Sunday night.

According to SHO Nisar Mahar, the money changer Arif Memon alias Kalia claims that he had been deprived of Rs 30 million cash and prize bonds.

The SHO said that Kalia, who owns a shop in Karachi's Bolton Market, was travelling in a bus from Karachi to Lahore.

"He claims that the bus was stopped by robbers wearing police uniforms for checking purpose on the National Highway near Hatri police station. The policemen asked Kalia to dismount from the bus and later took him away in the mobile van," he told the reporter.

Kalia told the police that as many as seven robbers in the police mobile handcuffed and blindfolded him, took him away to Jamshoro and threw him over the Indus Highway after looting his money.

The SHO said that the police were investigating the case and details about Kalia were also being obtained from the money changers of Karachi.

Meanwhile, he added, the police had also coordinated with Jamshoro and Dadu.
