Three persons were arrested from a five-star hotel in Mumbai for allegedly cheating a businessman to the tune of Rs 80 lakh under the pretext of offering him new banknotes of Rs 2000 denomination at half the rate through their 'money exchange', police said on Monday. The accused have allegedly cheated many people from Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and other parts of the country by employing a similar modus operandi in which they would claim to have "contacts" in the Central government. The trio used to claim that they run a money exchange, a crime branch officer said, adding that they were arrested on Saturday.
