When three Indian businessmen opened the door of their second-floor shop in Little India yesterday, they were greeted by three men dressed in the blue of the Singapore Police Force.

But instead of being protected by these "cops", they were relieved of over $100,000 by the brazen police impersonators.

The robbery occurred around 8.15am at 103, Dunlop Street in Little India.
