The Day As It Unfolds

Delhi Police Arrests Man Who Posed As PMO Official, Visiting Card Gives Away Real Identity

He was on the radar of the special cell since Oct 17 when it received a tip-off about him.


The special cell of Delhi Police has nabbed a man who posed as director in the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) and it was his visiting card that gave away his real identity leading to the arrest.

A man who had been impersonating as a director in the PMO office has been arrested by the special cell of Delhi Police. According to reports from Zee News, the man who has been identified as Kanhaiya Kumar aka Dr. KK was arrested from Noida Sector 100 on Monday. It is alleged that he had been posing as a PMO official and even used the PMO’s room number as his address on his visiting card.

Earlier, he had contacted the Central Vigilance Commissioner (CVC) on Sep 20 asking for favors for an Indian Defence Accounts Service officer but the former grew suspicious of him, claims NDTV. He contacted the PMO to confirm his credentials and it was then that he found out that there was no director of his name. Later, the matter was transferred to the Delhi Police which assigned it to the special cell.

During the investigation, the police found out that Kanhaiya Kumar’s visiting card bore the right details about the room number of the PMO but the phone number mentioned on the card was wrong and it proved to be his undoing. The police have arrested him now and also produced him before the chief metropolitan magistrate at the Patiala House Court who remanded him to 10-days custody.

The police have filed a case of forgery, cheating, impersonation and criminal conspiracy against him and are also looking for his friend in Hyderabad who got his visiting card printed. Notably, Kanhaiya Kumar used to roam around in an SUV that had a Government of India sticker on it and used to ask for favors from bureaucrats and government officers.
