Vinayak Chadha : Delhi Man Arrested for Impersonating IAF Officer | India News

In a surprising turn of events, a 39-year-old man from Delhi’s Malka Ganj area was apprehended by Delhi Police for impersonating a Wing Commander of the Indian Air Force (IAF) and attempting to gain unauthorized access to the Palam Air Force station. The suspect, identified as Vinayak Chadha, was caught by Air Force personnel on February 21 while trying to enter the station with a fake identity card.

Unbeknownst to Chadha, his plans were foiled when Air Force security personnel intercepted him at the entrance of the station. A junior Warrant Officer from the Air Force filed a formal complaint detailing the incident, leading to the registration of a case under Section 419/468/471/474 IPC (Indian Penal Code) at the Delhi Cantt police station.

During interrogation, Chadha confessed that he was seeking medical treatment for his father, Gaurav Chadha, and resorted to using counterfeit identification to gain access to restricted areas. It was also discovered that Chadha had managed to enter the Air Force Dental Hospital by posing as a Wing Commander and presenting forged documents.

The Delhi Police confirmed that Chadha was in possession of one forged identity card and several liquor cards bearing the names of different defense personnel. He remains in police custody as further investigations continue into the extent of his fraudulent activities.

This incident serves as a reminder of the importance of stringent security measures at sensitive locations such as the Palam Air Force station. The swift action taken by Air Force personnel highlights their commitment to ensuring the safety and integrity of military installations.
