BENGALURU: Seven advocates, said to be appointed by the Delhi High Court to study the availability of fake mobile phones in the market, were mistaken for fake policemen and abused by shop owners in Gandhi Nagar.

Upparpete police, however, intervened and rescued them before the situation could get out of hand.

On Saturday, the men had arrived in the city to conduct a raid on shops. While they were at SN Bazaar in Majestic, some shopkeepers became suspicious on hearing them speak in Hindi and demanded that they show their ID cards. However, the men claimed they were not carrying their ID cards.

Two of them identified as Hyder and Kati have filed an FIR against unidentified shop owners. Police also said they had produced ID cards to prove that they were not ‘fake’.
