Ankit Kumar who is a resident of Meerut, Uttar Pradesh had been trying his maximum best to crack the exams to become a sub-inspector in the police but was literally falling short by a whisker for clearing the physical examination.
He did everything to increase his height by gaining pills and also did various exercises but that didn’t really work for him.
In a very serious attempt to fulfil his dreams and get that dream job, he tried something different but ended up getting caught.
According to a report in Times Of India, Ankit applied ‘henna’ to his hair and then styled them in such a way that his hair stood in spikes after which he looked a cm taller than he really was. His hack didn’t really work with the police officers who disqualified him and also filed an FIR against him.
“According to norms, a person needs to be 168 cm tall to clear the physical test for recruitment as sub-inspector. When we were testing Kumar’s height with our machine – in which a metallic plate touches the head of an individual whose height is being measured – a gap was noticed between his hair and the plate, which otherwise does not happen. That is when we became doubtful and checked his hair to see what the matter was,” said Sanjeev Bajpair, the head of the physical test being conducted there.
During the interrogation session, Ankit eventually confessed his wrong-doing. An FIR under section 420 has been filed against him and he is under interrogation right now.
