The alleged scam was out of this world but Indian police brought a father and son duo down to earth Wednesday when they paraded them in the fake space suits used to convince a businessman to hand over more than $200,000.

The victim, a garments exporter, approached the Delhi Police Crime Branch earlier this month, claiming that the duo, both motor mechanics, along with a bunch of others, duped him of ₹14.3 million by claiming that they would sell the device to NASA.

The complainant told the Police that a few years ago, he came in contact with one person who told him about the enormous profits in dealing with Rice Puller. The tests would apparently be done by DRDO scientists and some chemicals would be imported for it.

As per the reports, the alleged victims told the businessman that they have a special copper plate that was struck by the lightning bolt giving it special ability to attract grain of rice.

Once the complaint was lodged, the police arrested the Brar duo who deals in antique/rare metals. He paid Rs 5.6 lakh, 19 lakh, Rs 24.6 lakh and Rs 38 lakh to arrange for the test, including anti-radiation suits, scientists' fee and chemicals that were required for the test. This is when the victim realised he cheated by the so-called scientists. Later, he started looking for new avenues of easy income and he started cheating people on pretext of buying rare and antique object like magic mirror, rice puller, dual headed snakes, Naagmani etc. Later, he was made to sign another deal and paid Rs 51.1 lakh.
