Bhubaneswar, Oct 11:

The Commissionerate Police  today arrested a 40-year-old man in the Odisha capital for impersonating as a CBI officer and demanding money from a Cuttack-based dental surgeon.

The arrested perosn has been identified as Prabir Dasbabu, a native of Baripada in Mayurbhanj district.

Police sources said Dasbabu had asked the surgeon to appear before the CBI saying a case is pending against him in New Delhi.

Puzzled and worried, the surgeon sent his advocate to meet with Dasbabu in a hotel here. When the advocate asked the accused to produce his identify card, he failed to produce one and gave a  number of excuses. The advocate then decided to report the matter to the police.

The police arrested Dasbabu on charges of extortion and impersonation.
