  • After Narendar approached the crime branch and said that he was duped the crime branch constituted a team after noting down his complaint

Brar and Mohan then kept telling Narender that a few tests would have to be carried out and the businessman shelled out Rs 87.2 lakh for these tests to be conducted, reported Times Now.

He wrote they had assured the victim the "rice puller" would be sold to NASA for millions of rupees after it had been tested by scientists.

The pair allegedly convinced the victim to buy a copper plate for $213,156, claiming it had "special properties" to it, police said.

The Delhi Police arrested the two on Tuesday.

The victim then signed an agreement with Brar and Mohan and paid an additional Rs 51 lakh so that the tests and other requirements could be completed. "The accused claimed to be testing a Rice Puller, aka "RP", a brass plate apparently charged by thunderbolt and required by NASA Administration/DRDO for space research", said Alok Kumar, Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime).

Shirtless Donald Glover debuts intense 'This Is America' video, song on 'SNL'
While Glover debuted the song during his " SNL " performance, it was the subsequent visuals that sent tongues a-wagging. See the full video below, which was directed by Hiro Murai , who has worked on several episodes of " Atlanta ".

Thereafter, the testing of the said RP was scheduled in Hapur but could not happen as the accused persons made an excuse that the place was not conducive and after that the said testing was delayed by them on one or another pretext.

The "spacemen", however, were caught out when the businessman went to police complaining about them. What's more hilarious is the fact that the father-son duo also indulged in posing as DRDO officials wearing a spacesuit to explain to the businessman why more research is required before "Rice Puller" could be sold to NASA at astronomical prices.

At the same time, other associates of the alleged seller of the RP mounted pressure on the victim for finalisation of the deal or they would sell the RP to some other person and took him to another company M/s Stars World Heritage, East of Kailash, for sale of RP and induced him that he would not be cheated this time. He also found out that the so-called scientists were also a part of the plan and were working with the fraudsters for Rs 20,000.

Police said the men appeared to have covered a copper plate with "liquid magnet" and iron wires in order to try to fool the businessman.

During probe, the alleged RP copper plate, anti-radiation suits from NASA and anti-radiation chemical stickers were recovered along laptop, printer, blank letter heads of Rehan Metals, US, one Audi vehicle from the accused.
