The Uttar Pradesh Police have arrested an employed man after he allegedly diverted his number to Noida Police Commissioner Alok Singh to impress a woman, who had rejected his advances. The man has been identified as Deepak, a resident of the Agra district in Uttar Pradesh.
Quoting Deputy Commissioner of Police (Central Noida) Harish Chander, news agency PTI reported that the Noida Police had registered an FIR against the man on 16 August.
According to reports, the accused worked in Noida in the past and had returned to his native place in Agra, where he met a woman. Deepak, who’s currently jobless, had to face disappointment after the woman refused to reciprocate his love for her.
“He would still call and message the woman even as she and her brother asked them against doing so. Eventually, he diverted the incoming calls to the number of the police commissioner in order to intimidate them and create a powerful impression of himself,” an officer was quoted as saying.
Deepak also reportedly used the name of a photo of the Noida Police Commissioner on Truecaller mobile app to add legitimacy to his fraud. According to DCP Chander, he did so to intimidate the woman and his family. He’s now been sent to jail after the police booked him under several relevant sections of the IPC.
