Motivational content has become a very trending topic these days on YouTube. There are several channels dedicated to motivating people with their own success stories and mantras to achieve big in life. Some use such videos for marketing themselves and their companies also. Well, there is no problem if you are doing it in the right manner and right purpose but a social media sensation named Abhay Meena has been arrested by the Rajasthan Police’s Special Operations Group (SOG) as he was pretending to be an Indian Police Service (IPS) officer.
It has been revealed that the 20-year-old was a class-12th fail but inspired youths to take up challenges in life. Meena used to give inspirational talks about how he studied for several long hours to crack IIT and UPSC exams in the first attempt. His videos are full of tips and lectures to aspirants on how they can crack both JEE and UPSC exams in the first attempt.
Interestingly, even cops seem to have fallen in his trap as he allegedly “awarded medals” to several real police officers. He got saluted by many cops and even met several high-ranking officers at various events.
Abhay was finally taken into notice after someone found his business card “suspicious” which spelled Crime Branch as “Branche” and capital as “capitol”.
According to police officials, Meena attended many parties in different states. He posted pictures of these parties and award functions on his Facebook page which described himself as an IIT-Delhi graduate with a B.Tech degree.
What made him fool people easily was having a fake three-star numbered car. Even traffic police never bothered to check his car. He obtained free service from five-star hotels with his fake identity. He also had a live-in relationship with a woman from Uttarakhand.
“In police hierarchy, a three-star cop is either a DG or additional DG (ADG) rank official. Therefore, such honor is reserved only for senior officials, not for a 20-year-old new entrant into the service,” an official said.
Well, this is a case of fake marketing. Many cases are coming out about brands and individuals who use fake marketing to sell their services or products to make quick money. We never recommend our readers to do any such activities as sooner or later you may it all will end up in a single minute.
