Narendra, a resident of Delhi and a garment businessman approached the crime branch that he has been cheated by Virender Mohan Brar, Nitin Brar and others to the tune of Rs 1.43 crore on pretext of investing money for buying and testing Rice Puller.

Calling the copper plate a "rice puller", The accused told the businessman he could sell it to NASA for Rs 37,500 crore if it "tested" positive for the unique physical properties.

Police in New Delhi have arrested a father and son dressed in radiation suits who convinced a businessman to give them more than $260,000, claiming they had a deal with NASA.

The victim then signed an agreement with Brar and Mohan and paid an additional Rs 51 lakh so that the tests and other requirements could be completed. In this regard, they also said that that they would have to import some chemicals, according to the police. "Rice Puller is a non-existent thing, but cheats take a copper plate or utensil and coat it with liquid magnet and then fill some boiled rice with small iron wires and befool the victim by pulling the rice grain towards the magnet coated copper article", said Alok Kumar, joint commissioner of police (Crime). This is when the victim realised he cheated by the so-called scientists.




RP or Rice Puller does not exist. 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.

Police told Indian media the men passed off the metal plate as a "rare piece of copper", which they said was "struck by thunderbolt" giving the ability to attract rice. Soon he informed the police about the defrauding and got them arrested. 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.

Both father and son have kept their mouth shut on the matter even after the public humiliation by parading the space suits.

Alleged "Rice Pullar" copper plate, anti radiation scientist's suits of NASA, anti radiation chemical stickers have been recovered along with laptop, printer, blank letter heads of Rehan Metals/USA, cheque books, fake ID cards of Rehan Metals and one Audi vehicle.
