Chandigarh: In a display of misplaced expression of love, a young man from Fazilka district of Punjab was caught for impersonation when he came ``dolled up and in ladies’ attire’’ to take a test in place of his girlfriend, a few days ago in Punjab.
The bizarre case, which is now being as seen as the most unexpected comical act of impersonation, came to light on January 7 last when, one Angrez Singh, 26, decided to get a fake Aadhaar and voter cards made, even got clean-shaven and facials made up so as to appear in a recruitment examination at Faridkot, in place of his girlfriend, Paramjeet Kaur, 34.
Accused's invalid biometrics gave away
The entrance examination was held by Baba Farid University of Health Sciences, Faridkot, at a local school, for the post of female multipurpose health workers. Angrez was, but caught when his biometric details did not match with the original candidate.
The 'dolled up' lover
According to the media reports, the accused, who hailed from Fazilka had come to the examination hall wearing a ladies’ suit - salwar kameez -, stole with a cap and managed to enter the examination hall but was noticed by the officials who compared the candidate’s photo with his face. Later, the biometrics were done which did not match and it was soon found out that he had impersonated as Kaur, 34, his girlfriend.
It was also learnt that while Kaur had failed in the exam in the past, he decided to take this course.
Stating that while Kaur's paper had been cancelled, the police said that Kaur had been made a co-accused in the case, though the investigation into the case is on.
