A 24-year-old man hailing from Uttar Pradesh’s Gautam Buddha Nagar was apprehended by paramilitary forces at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport for impersonating a pilot. 

Key Points 

• Man poses as Singapore Airlines pilot at Delhi airport

• He was caught by paramilitary forces

• He fabricated his IDs, credentials using online app

Identified as Sangeet Singh, the impersonator was intercepted by Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel while wandering near the airport skywalk dressed in a pilot’s uniform.

Despite lacking any authentic credentials, Singh had deceived his own family into believing that he held the position of a commercial pilot. He even went as far as to wear an ID card around his neck, falsely claiming to be an employee of Singapore Airlines.

However, upon scrutiny, it was revealed that Singh’s purported credentials were fabricated. He had forged a counterfeit ID card supposedly representing Singapore Airlines, utilizing a business card maker application. Additionally, he had acquired the pilot’s uniform from the Dwarka area of the national capital.

Investigations revealed that Singh had completed a one-year aviation hospitality course in Mumbai in 2020. Subsequently, he was arrested, and a case was registered against him for his fraudulent activities.

Reacting to the incident, Singapore’s High Commissioner HC Wong expressed relief that the impersonator was apprehended. It was disclosed that Singh had utilized an online app, Business Card Maker, to forge the IDs purporting to represent Singapore Airlines and had purchased the uniform from Dwarka.

Further inquiries uncovered that Singh had misled his family and acquaintances into believing that he held the prestigious position of a Singapore Airlines pilot.
