A complaint of robbery was received by police on January 5, SP rural Iraj Raja said.
In his complaint, Singh said he had called Nasir on mobile phone and told him about the delivery of 40 lakh rupees cash.

“Just to verify his identity I again called on the same mobile number which rang the phone he was carrying,” Singh said.
