Bengaluru: Police officials have arrested six people, including two fake cops for allegedly robbing a 26-year-old government job aspirant.
The accused have been identified as HV Ajay Kumar alias Mohan, (41) of Avalahalli, Jnanamurthy R, (42) of Yelahanka, BK Ravichandra, (36) of Harohalli near Anugondanahalli, Murugesh S, (27) of Bairasandra near Malur, Muniraju G, (33) of Kudiyanur and Kumaraswamy R, (38) of Agrahara near Yelahanka.

Kambale met Shivakumar four years ago in Goa and recently Shivakumar assured him of a government job if he arranges Rs 10 lakh.
