  • The two accused claimed'rice-puller is an ancient magical apparatus made of copper and iridium that is used by agencies like NASA

Delhi Police say at least 30 people fell for the swindle, and paraded the pair in their crinkly silver outfits for the press. Narendra then approached the individual who told him about RP and its lucrative avenues.

Narendra ended up paying them lakhs of rupees in installments after entering into an MoU with Virender Brar. The police told the media that they covered the copper plate with a liquid magnet in order to fool the businessman. The victim signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) and paid Rs 87.2 lakh on different occasions for arranging special anti-radiation suits to be worn by scientists during testing, fees of the scientists and for chemicals required for testing.

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. But at that time, the testing was not conducted by the accused persons stating that the sky was not clear.

The complainant told the Police that a few years ago, he came in contact with one person who told him about the enormous profits in dealing with Rice Puller.

Speaking of the device and how it has no objective, Naveen Gaur, an associate professor of physics at Delhi University's Dyal Singh College told Hindustan Times: "The "rice puller" is only a common metal plate that is useless for scientists in every way". The cheats claimed that the object was a rare piece of copper which was struck by thunderbolt in the hills of Uttarakhand that enabled it to pull rice and was being used by NASA in its research. It is much sought after by space agencies for advanced space research. He further came to know that he had been cheated and the so-called scientists are members of the racket, the police said. They ask the victims to fund the testing that their company would arrange.

Even though they did get caught, one must appreciate the creativity of these con men!

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

Other scams reportedly included selling magic mirrors and two-headed snakes.
