A 12th failed young man faked being an IPS officer and delivered motivational lectures on how to crack IIT and UPSC examinations. The man named Abhay Meena has been arrested by the police for the forgery.
The Special Operations Group (SOG) has found out that he had been felicitated by some organizations for his fake bio-data and ability to speak. He came on the police radar when someone found a spelling mistake on his identity card. His card misspelled crime branch as ‘branche’ and capital as ‘capitol’.
Meena has also awarded medals and certificates to several real police officers for their work. Additional Superintendent of Police, SOG, Karan Sharma revealed that Meena used to extort money in his 20s on the pretense of being an IPS officer.
He also added that three teams were made to catch Meena. One team tracked him down, the second team studied his social media profile while the third one chased him.
The investigation revealed that Meena introduced himself as an Indian Police Service officer. His facebook profile claims that he was an Assistant Commissioner of Police posted with CB-CID. His page also described him as an IIT-Delhi graduate with a BTech degree.
His fake identity has helped him obtain free service from five-star hotels. He hails from Piloda village in Sawai Madhopur. The police have seized an IPS uniform, a wireless set, three airguns, and a fake ID card, from his flat in Jaipur.
