The man is said to have withdrawn cash from a bank and was walking home when he was accosted by a few men who struck a conversation and convinced him that they were sons of a friend of his. After gaining the senior’s confidence, they asked him to give them the ring saying they liked the design and wanted to get one for their father.
They even gave him a lift on their bike, managed to get his bag which had the money and after seizing the ring and the money, made off.
The senior then filed a complaint at the Mylapore police station on Kutchery Road. Police are investigating this case.
