The Delhi Police on Friday arrested a man for impersonating an army officer and cheating gullible people on the pretext of seeking help to operate his ATM card.
As per a statement from the Delhi Police, the accused, Sunil Kumar Dubey carried a forged Army ID card so that people would trust his intentions.
As many as 14 credit and debit cards were seized from his possession.
