A 32-year-old Indian has been caught for impersonating an 81-year-old using his passport so that he could fly to New York.
32-year-old impersonates an 81-year-old man, say what?!
32-year-old Jayesh Patel arrived at an airport in Delhi sporting his beard dyed in white and wore a turban to cover his hair. He rode in a wheelchair and avoided eye contact to make it through the airport.
All this effort to look 49 years older!
Straight out of a movie scene ! This is 32 yr old Jayesh Patel who presented himself as a 81 yr old man, with coloured beard and hairs, at the Delhi airport yesterday for travel to NY. Nabbed by @CISFHQrspic.twitter.com/vJczVQiQOn
Officials from the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) caught him after being suspicious about his age and looks. He was subjected to rounds of questioning and went through a detailed check to unravel his real identity.

“The appearance and skin texture of the passenger seemed to be much younger than mentioned in the passport. The man was non prescription glasses to conceal his age. He was later handed over to immigration officials on charges of impersonation and further probe.”

While we’re not sure what the future holds for Jayesh Patel, we reckon he wouldn’t make a great make-up artist in Hollywood.
