To meet girlfriend, techie poses as army captain
Umesh Kumar, a computer engineer from Rajasthan, was arrested recently for impersonating as army captain to meet his girlfriend in Jammu. He is said to have repeatedly breached high security military installations in his love pursuit. Umesh was picked up by the police in a routine raid from a hotel in Jammu. He later turned out to be a major catch for the police as they recovered forged documents of sensitive nature including army identity cards, smart canteen cards, medical records and other papers from his possession.
During questioning, he reportedly told the police that he had forged the documents to gain access to his girlfriend who is working in one of the army hospitals in Jammu.
“He has been going around calling himself an army officer. In the process he cheated a woman whom he promised to marry. We have registered a case of cheating against him,” said J.P. Singh, Deputy Inspector General of Police, Jammu-Kathua range. What has, however, baffled the police is that he has been visiting number of army installations including Yol cantonment in Himachal Pradesh and Nagrota garrison of 16 Crops army headquarters.
