    The Hyderabad Commissioner’s Task Force, East Zone Team, along with Masab Tank police, caught a man pretending to be a police officer and cheating people by promising them jobs in the police department. The man, Kadavath Somla Naik, was found with a sub-inspector’s uniform, a mobile phone, and a two-wheeler.

    Naik, a 44-year-old car driver from Banjara Hills, had previously trained to be a Soldier GD in the Army but left after six months. He then tried to join the Assam Rifles but had to leave due to health issues. Despite failing police recruitment exams in the past, he started impersonating a police officer in 2012.

    Wearing a police uniform, Naik attended events and convinced people in his village that he was a real sub-inspector or constable. He even tricked job seekers into giving him money, collecting a total of Rs 11 lakh through deceitful means. Naik was handed over to Masab Tank police along with the seized items for further investigation.
