The Central Crime Branch officials arrested a 23-year-old youth from Jharkhand, who was posing as a scientist with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) to impress his girlfriend.
The imposter was exposed when the cheque he issued to the owner of a flat in HMT Layout which he had rented for his girlfriend bounced.
Murshid Akmal, a native of Itaki town in Ranchi district of Jharkhand, is a PU dropout while his girlfriend is pursuing her engineering degree in Jharkhand. In order to impress her, Akmal lied to her he was working for ISRO and was a scientist in PSLV project in Bangalore.
Some months ago, his girlfriend informed she was coming to Bangalore on a project work with her friends and Akmal boasted that he would make the necessary arrangements for her stay.
A besotted Akmal then rented a car for a monthly rent of Rs. 35,000 and pasted a Government of India sticker on it. He also downloaded ISRO’s logo from the internet and created a fake ID card. He also rented a flat in Platinum City on HMT Road near Peenya to accommodate her.
