While IAS aspirants struggle for years to clear their civil services exams, this Noida woman conned her way into the system.

According to TOI, Zoya Khan who is around 30 years old was arrested from her home in Noida along with her husband for fraud and forgery.

Apparently, she was a civil service aspirant who holds a Master’s degree in Political Science from Delhi University and failed to clear her civil service exams in 2017.

Reports add that she forged documents and IDs to make herself look like an Indian Foreign Service Officer, a Nuclear Policy Officer for the United Nations Security Council and a US Diplomat in Afghanistan.

Allegedly, she used to send e-mails from her ‘official’ ID (securitychief@unitednationssecuritycouncil.org).

She would often make police officials salute her and demand for police protection. Her cover was blown when she yelled at Noida SSP Vaibhav Krishna after there was a delay in arranging police security for her. Krishna found this behaviour a little unusual and arranged for a warrant to raid her house. Along with fake IDs, walkie-talkies, fake pistols, laptops and two luxury cars were recovered from her 3-BHK apartment in Noida extension.
