Hyderabad: Man impersonating police officer arrested for extortion
 

Hyderabad: His aspirations to be part of the armed forces or the police force failing to fructify, the 44-year-old went around wearing a cop’s uniform and cheating people.

The Hyderabad Commissioner’s Task Force team had caught Kadavath Somla Naik, a resident of Road No.1 Banjara Hills, for allegedly impersonating a police officer and extorting money from people.

Somla Naik reportedly had a passion for joining the armed forces and was selected twice. He underwent training but had to drop out due to health issues. Later, in 2012, he appeared for the police recruitment exam but did not get selected.

“Somla Naik purchased a police uniform and started wearing it. He introduced himself as a police sub-inspector or constable on some or other pretext and collected money from people,” said DCP Task Force, S Rashmi Perumal.

On specific information that Somla Naik had collected Rs. 2 lakh from one Gowri Shanker promising to help him get a job, the police caught the suspect. The man admitted that he had also extorted money from people.

A case is booked against Somla Naik, at Masab Tank police station.
