Javed, a resident of Delhi, after being nabbed by the police, confessed to his crime and made startling revelations about his interaction with these girls most of whom belong to well-to-do and educated families. The rickshaw puller confessed that he masked behind the picture of this famous IPS officer, Nurul Hasan, a 2015 batch Maharashtra cadre IPS to lure these upscale girls.
Hasan is currently posted as SP in a district of Maharashtra. Hasan, who comes from a humble background and reached the rank of IPS, is famous on social media because of this achievement.
After befriending women on social media, Javed started exchanging obscene messages and lured the girls to send him their nudes and private pictures. This continued for quite some time until a student residing in Bareilly complained about the same to the DIG.
Moreover, amongst the long list of girls whom the rickshaw puller was tricking, there was one girl named Mehnaz a resident of Bareilly, who developed an honest feeling for the swindler in the process. When she asked Javed for marriage, he stopped talking to her. After the conversation stopped, Mehnaz and his mother started contacting the real IPS officer’s father pestering him to marry off his son to the girl.
Nurul Hasan’s father tried showing all the evidence that the person the girl was chatting with on Facebook was a fake person and not his son, but the girl and her mother insisted on marrying the IPS officer. Moreover, when the mother-daughter duo failed to convince the IPS officer’s family, they started threatening and blackmailing the IPS officer. Hasan’s father was then forced to lodge a complaint against the fraudulence.
On the basis of these complaints, Bareilly Police began to investigate the matter. It soon unfolded that a rickshaw puller, a native of Delhi’s Dariyaganj area, had been operating a fake Facebook account with the picture of this IPS officer as his profile picture which helped him attract many friends on Facebook. In fact, many women IPS and PPS officers had also fallen prey to this trickster’s hoax.
Bareilly police ultimately apprehended Javed from his residence in Delhi after which he confessed to his crime.
