A Calgary, Alberta man has been arrested in India for impersonating a police officer in an attempt to scam women into marrying him.
When 27 year old Inderjit Singh Dhanota was arrested last week in the Indian state of Punjab, he was in possession of a toy gun, and a fake badge and uniform similar to the ones worn by the Calgary City Police. For the past month, he had been driving around Ludhiana with a flashing red light affixed to the top of his car and the word "police" painted across the side. He allegedly placed an ad in the local paper claiming that he was the "Commissioner of the Calgary Police" in an attempt to lure young women into meeting him and marrying him. He also opened up a business specializing in immigration to Canada next door to the hotel where he was staying.
Dhanota has been charged with impersonating a police officer and cheating on the two women that he managed to dupe into marrying him.
