NASA Con Men Wearing Space Suits In India Paraded Around By Police

Conmen with Delhi Police

The duo persuaded the victim of the scam to invest in a copper plate for 14.3m Rs (£157,600), which they claimed had "special properties", police said. The money was reportedly also meant to buy a few radiation suits to be worn during the tests and to import a few chemicals for the same.

It all started three years ago, when Narendra came in contact with an individual who explained the huge profits that were to be gained by investing in the RP, which was apparently required by the likes of NASA and DRDO, no less. They claim that the metal is struck by thunderbolt in the hills of Uttarakhand, which in turn gives it unique powers. The cheating happened on the pretext of arranging the testing procedure that included arranging special chemicals, calling foreign scientists and buying special Hazmat suits for them. Actually, Rice Puller is nothing but a copper plate or utensil coated with liquid magnet and boiled rice is filled with small iron wires. The Crime Branch of Delhi Police nabbed Virender Mohan Brar (56) and son Nitin Mohan Brar (30) who defrauded a victim, Narendra, on the pretext of a product called Rice Puller (RP) that space agencies were apparently willing to purchase for Rs 37,500 crore after testing its genuineness. He further came to know that he had been cheated and the so-called scientists are members of the racket, the police said. Narender succumbed to pressure and again entered into a MoU with the company, paying ₹5.11 million on different occasions for the testing of "Rice Puller", which was now scheduled to take place in Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh, the police said.

Even though they did get caught, one must appreciate the creativity of these con men!

Disney-Fox Deal Could Get Derailed By Potential Cash Offer From Comcast
For those unaware, Comcast was another corporate entity that proposed to acquire 21st Century Fox previous year . As Sonia Legg reports , Comcast has also filed for European Union approval for the Sky deal.

Later, Narender realised that the "DRDO scientists" were working for Brar for just Rs 20,000. At social gatherings, the father-son duo performed this trick, and if it drew the attention of any potential customer, they would continuously follow up with him and pose as a "rice-puller seller".

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.
