New Delhi, India: A Delhi-man was nabbed by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) on Tuesday for impersonating a flight captain.
The person identified as Rajan Mahbubani was dressed as a captain of the German airlines Lufthansa.
He was arrested from the departure gate of the airport on Monday and was about to board Air Asia flight to Kolkata.
Mahbubani also had a fake ID card of a Lufthansa Airlines pilot, a senior CISF officer said.
"The passenger disclosed that he used to shoot YouTube videos on aviation and had obtained the Lufthansa fake ID card in Bangkok," the officer said.
"Mahbubani said that he is a frequent traveller and used to dress up as a pilot to gain easy access during security clearance and get preferential treatment from security agencies and airlines," Deputy Commissioner of Police (IGI Airport) Sanjay Bhatia said.
During the interrogation, it was revealed that Mahbubani was fond of wearing uniforms of different professions and getting himself snapped.
He would use the passage normally used by airline crew members to enter the aircraft.
He also managed to get his seats upgraded on different occasions using the same modus operandi for most of his travels.
