Mumbai do remember these 2 faces, they are curse to Mumbaikars , These two taxi drivers operate from Dadar station they cheat and rob people who come to Mumbai via early morning train(Vidharbh , Mail etc )from other part of India . The guy in the 1st pic stands in the dadar east platform in casual dress and offer taxi to people getting down from train and claim he will charge meter fair, then take passenger outside the station, The guy on the 2nd picture is taxi driver , Once the passenger sits on the back seat of the car, the 1st guy gives a 1,000 rupee note to taxi driver and ask for a change of 2, 500 rupee Notes, the taxi driver denies and say he doesn’t have a change and intern ask passenger for the change. Now the Trap the moment passenger give change of Rs 1000 (2, 500 Rupee note) . the 1st guys diverts the attention of passenger and change 500 note to Rupee 100 or 50 rupee note and say “sir aap train may soey nahi kya (haven’t you slept in train ) , aap 500 k badely 100 ka note day rahey ho ….and 1st guy return back 100 Rupee note to passenger, the confused passengers end up giving further 500 Rs to these con man and if you are unlucky they will repeat the same process again, saying “kya sir phir say galat note deydiya” . Many passenger get conned by these two culprits ….Passenger come to know later after reaching home when calculate the money… Even some of my friends have being conned by them Gurusairam Kona Deepak Singh Rahang Divya Pande Dhruvaditya Bhagwanani when we discussed with other taxi drivers in dadar station they said these people work in gang and due to their acts other taxi driver have also suffered as passengers have started avoiding taking taxis from dadar east .
Since last 2 year we being trying to catch these guys and take pictures …they have being playing hide and seek with us…. today these robbers got trapped…. when we took their pictures and told we gona make police complaint they started laughing saying ” kar k dekh lo kuch nahi hoga ” sharing so that at least i can save few more people.
