Delhi Crime Branch busts con artists who sold a non-existent device called Rice Puller

Later, other associates of the alleged seller of the "Rice Puller" threatened to finalise the "deal" elsewhere and introduced the victim to another "seller", assuring him that this deal was genuine.

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.

"A few years ago, the complainant, Narender Saini, met Virender, who told him his company would sell the "rice puller" to NASA after building it".

The accused have now been arrested from Dwarka by the Delhi Police.

"Saini entered into an MoU with Virender and paid Rs 87.2 lakh for "anti-radiation suits", which the accused said would be worn by scientists during testing". 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. Narender succumbed to pressure and again entered into a MoU with the company, paying ₹5.11 million on different occasions for the testing of "Rice Puller", which was now scheduled to take place in Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh, the police said.

According to police, the pair had told the man that the "rare piece of copper" had been "struck by thunderbolt" and therefore had the power to pull rice towards it.

The cheats tell their victims that the RP will be purchased by NASA/DRDO for thousands of crores but the organizations will test it before purchasing. He also found out that the so-called scientists were also a part of the plan and were working with the fraudsters for Rs 20,000. He then filed a complaint and the father and son were arrested. During investigation, the "RP" copper plate, anti radiation scientist suits of NASA and anti-radiation chemical stickers were recovered from the possession of the accused, the Joint CP added. The duo spun a yarn about procuring a metal called "Rice Puller" which was highly sought after by NASA.

Police said the men appeared to have covered a copper plate with "liquid magnet" and iron wires in order to try to fool the businessman.
