Trichy: Yet another case of an elderly woman being conned by persons pretending to be policemen was recorded in Trichy on Monday.
The duo wrapped it in a piece of paper and handed it over to her.
Heaving a sigh of relief, Rajalakshmi too continued her journey towards home.However, on reaching home the woman found only a few pebbles wrapped in the paper.
They warned her to take the ornament out only after reaching home, and left.
