The complainant, Narender, is a businessman.

Garment businessman Narendra alleged that a few years ago, he came in contact with one person who told him about huge profits in dealing of Rice Puller, required by NASA/DRDO for space research and they pay thousands of crores for it.

They had allegedly told the Delhi-based businessman, named only as Narender, that if tests were successful, they would then sell the device to Nasa for $5bn.

The Delhi Police arrested the two on Tuesday.

But pressed on whether the horse has what it takes to complete a Triple Crown sweep, Baffert adopted a more conservative mood. Because it is so hard to predict five straight winners, Pick 5 bettors usually take home large jackpots.

They signed a deal and Narender paid Rs 87.2 lakh as fees for scientists and the cost of arranging special anti-radiation suits and chemicals that the scientists would wear while testing the device.

The footage of the duo, adorned in silver space suits, being arrested by the police has since gone viral, BBC reported. 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.

The testing of the RP was eventually scheduled in UP's Hapur but was cancelled because apparently the place was not conducive to the test, following which the testing was cancelled for a couple of times more.

Mickelson had earlier offered effusive praise of just how powerful Woods was in his prime. Masters in April, but finished equal 32nd and blamed poor iron play.

The accused, Virender Mohan Brar and his son Nitin Mohan Brar, had claimed they wanted to test the device, a "rare piece of copper struck by thunderbolt giving it the power to pull rice". This is when the victim realised he cheated by the so-called scientists.

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.

Even though they did get caught, one must appreciate the creativity of these con men! What's more hilarious is the fact that the father-son duo also indulged in posing as DRDO officials wearing a spacesuit to explain to the businessman why more research is required before "Rice Puller" could be sold to NASA at astronomical prices. Later the victim found out that the so called "scientists" were working with the accused at a monthly salary of Rs 20,000 and the entire scheme was a sham.

During the investigation, the RP' copper plate, anti-radiation scientist suits of NASA and anti-radiation chemical stickers were seized from their possession.
