Hyderabad: Karnati Guruvinod Kumar Reddy, 25, a civil services aspirant, who impersonated as an additional superintendent of police of National Investigation Agency (NIA), was arrested by the Central Zone Taskforce police  on Thursday.  He reportedly leveraged his fake ID card at railway reservation counters, cinema halls, public parks, shopping malls, toll gates for special treatment. He even managed to obtain VIP darshanams at many temples in South India. Police commissioner, Anjani Kumar said, “Reddy joined civil coaching hoping to crack it in 2017 but gave up after eight months of coaching. Owing to peer pressure from his friends and family, he forged a fake ID card and other documents as an IPS officer.”

Eventually, Giddalru police found his scam and arrested him.

 

After his release he rejoined coaching. Soon, he met Major Gedala Srinivasa Rao, a retired ex-service man, who was working as teaching Staff (Sociology) at a private institute, and introduced himself as the addl. superintendent of police of the NIA.  The accused also gained the officer’s trust and stayed in his house. The retired major introduced him to some serving IPS officers where Reddy even took a selfie with them introducing himself as an IPS officer. Reddy also called many police stations and used his fake authority to make cops do his personal work.

Reddy also stole a dummy pistol from the retired major’s house believing it to be an original. After this, a case was registered at the Gandhinagar police station under relevant section.

Police said, eventually Reddy was apprehended near Golconda crossroads, and was handed over to the Gandhinagar police station officials.
