A Nigerian and his Indian aide were nabbed by the UP Special Task Force for duping about 100 people, including a renowned female doctor in Lucknow.

The STF officials said the fraudsters identified as Amara Chukwu Roland and his aide Homeri of north-eastern state Manipur, acted on the pretext of assisting her in organising health camps.

Senior superintendent of police (SSP), STF Abhishek Singh, who confirmed the arrest said the accused had swindled Rs 70 crore from about 100 persons across India.

He said although they kept changing their locations frequently, the STF team arrested them from their Delhi hideout after tracking down their present location.
