Fake prisoner in jail for Rs 300 per day
Apr 9, 2015
AGRA: After fake IAS and IPS officers, now comes an intriguing case of a fake prisoner. Last month, a man surrendered to the police in a district court in Etah, claiming that he was wanted criminal Ehsaan. He was duly arrested and lodged in jail. However, a chain of events unfolded soon after, which revealed that the man was not the wanted criminal that he claimed to be. Instead, he was a daily wage labourer, Miyajaan, who had agreed to swap places with the real criminal because he had been offered Rs 300 per day, almost twice the amount he would earn in his day job.
阿格拉：在假冒的IAS和IPS官员之后，（译注：据维基百科，Indian Administrative Service，印度行政服务局，该局人员可被中央或州政府雇用，担任关键、战略要职；Indian Police Service, 印度警察服务局。这两个局的职位竞争极度激烈也最吃香） 现在又出来了一个假冒囚犯的案子。上个月，一名男子向埃塔(市，也是地区行政所在地）的一个地区法院自首，自称是通缉犯埃山。他被正式逮捕並关进牢房。然而，在那之后展开的一系列事件揭示了他不是那个他自称的通缉犯。而实际上，他是个打零工的，名叫米亚间。他同意跟真正的罪犯互換位置，因为对方给了他一个每天300卢比的出价，几乎是他零工所能挣的2倍。
The identity swap, which exposed the ineptitude of cops who were harboring the wrong man in jail for almost three weeks, was eventually revealed when Miyajaan’s wife came to meet him on Tuesday — ironically on the day that he was taken to court for a hearing on his bail petition. She told officials in court that the man they held was not the criminal that they thought to be, thereby shattering the sweet deal struck between her husband and Ehsaan.
Apparently, Ehsaan was wanted by police in a case of cattle smuggling and had been on the run since November last year. After a court issued summons to him, he devised the plan of sending someone else in his place. “Ehsaan played a trick. He sent Miyajaan to court with a fake ID so that he could go to jail in place of him. He also convinced Miyajaan that he would soon arrange to get him out on bail. But the labourer’s wife’s disclosure spoiled his plans,” said SK Verma, senior superintendent of police, Etah.
Meanwhile, the fake prisoner has now been booked by the police for aiding a criminal and has landed back in jail. The hunt for the original criminal is still on.
This is nothing new. Well off ones who had done some criminal activities gets dupes to take the rap. Not exactly dupes but ask their understudy to tell the court they have done the crime their boss is accused of. I need not tell of the super star who is getting his driver for the killing of innocent people by riding over them.
Getting a fake ID, in connivance of politicians, is no issue in India. This way thousands of Muslim Bangladeshis are getting IDs and settling in different parts of India. Now it is expected of Modi Govt. who boasted of deporting all illegal migrants, to identify the culprit anti national politicians and put them behind bars.

There are thousands in India who would go to jail at this price as they not only get regular income but free baording and lodging too.
and the police as we know are the smartest in our country!if not for the wife’s revealation , nobody would have bothered to even check the mans identity

It is we as society & govt who are partly responsible for not being able to generate enough opportunity for people like Miyaan and force them to take criminal route. Every human wants to lead a dignified life but what if avenues are not provided…!!!
lol… only in India ??

This is not an isolated case surely as we have been hearing similar stories for many years. If fake IAS and IPS is possible then nothing is impossible.

what is outsourcing available for anything..
Brilliant idea. A Bollywood movie can be made based on this idea. This shows there is no shortage of innovation in India!
In Tamil Nadu after some murders have been committed many surrender in different courts as the killers. many later prove to be bogus.
