A fake police station operating in Anurag Guest House in the Banka city of Bihar was busted by police on Wednesday morning. For the past eight months, this fake police station has been extorting money from the locals. Surprisingly, no one was aware that a fraudulent police station was operating. The man and a woman dressed as a police officer were detained during the raid by the police.
The young woman, Anita Devi, who pretended to be a police officer, was also found to be in possession of a pistol. She stated that the higher officers had given her this “katta” as a training tool. She asserted that Hemant Soren, the chief minister of Jharkhand, ordered her reinstatement.
