Indian fraudsters ridiculed after being paraded in 'space suits'

They had also assured the man that the "Rice Puller" could be sold to Nasa for around $5.5bn.

The pair allegedly convinced the businessman to buy a copper plate for US$213,156 ($285,715), which they claimed had "special properties", police said on Wednesday. In an incident that took place in Delhi, a father-son duo reportedly duped a garments businessman of Rs 1.43 crore, after asking him to invest in a device that NASA apparently "required".

Two Indians have been paraded by police in homemade "space suits" after their arrest for a freaky space scam. After that, the victim entered into an MoU with Virender Mohan Brar and paid Rs 87.2 lakh for arranging special anti-radiation suits to be worn by scientists during testing, fees of scientist, for obtaining chemicals required for testing etc. 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. They claim that the metal is struck by thunderbolt in the hills of Uttarakhand, which in turn gives it unique powers. He further came to know that he had been cheated and the so-called scientists are members of the racket, the police said.

Virender Mohan Brar also told the complainant that they would pay Rs 10 crore immediately as token money if the test found OK. The duo spun a yarn about procuring a metal called "Rice Puller" which was highly sought after by NASA.

Alok Kumar, joint commissioner of police (crime), said the duo was arrested after the victim approached the police in April on realising that the scheduled scientific tests were being constantly postponed.

Later, Narender realised that the "DRDO scientists" were working for Brar for just Rs 20,000. Subsequently, Virender Mohan Brar and his son Nitin Mohan alias Baba Brar, were arrested, they said.

Alleged "Rice Pullar" copper plate, anti radiation scientist's suits of NASA, anti radiation chemical stickers have been recovered along with laptop, printer, blank letter heads of Rehan Metals/USA, cheque books, fake ID cards of Rehan Metals and one Audi auto.
