Two innocent elderly women, fell prey to professional tricksters who have begun robbing people especially women with the help of tricks or stories that would keep the person engaged while the trickster could rob the ornaments. Two elderly women- Gulu Gawas and Vasanti Gawas were the latest victims of these tricksters on Thursday early morning in Vasco. Social Activist Pritam Naik has urged the women to be safe if such tricksters and also appealed to Vasco police to monitor the movement of such tricksters and take immediate actions on several migrants that have been entering the port town of late.
The two women who are vendors of traditional fruits said that one middle aged man, approached them and told that they must remove their gold ornamentsand put it a currency note and tie it to their own Saree veil before he offers them a new Saree. The women agreed to do so. The man later left from the place saying he would come back with a new Saree but never returned. When the women later opened their Saree veil, the ornaments were not there and instead a small stone was found.
