He wrote they had assured the victim the "rice puller" would be sold to NASA for millions of rupees after it had been tested by scientists.

The NASA con men were passing off the metal plate as a rare piece of copper which they claimed was struck by a thunderbolt.

Two Indians have been paraded by police in homemade "space suits" after their arrest for a freaky space scam.

The victim then approached the first person who introduced him to another contact working with M/s Rehan Metals, USA, having office in Moti Nagar.

Police said the men appeared to have covered a copper plate with "liquid magnet" and iron wires in order to try to fool the businessman.

Photos and a video of the father and son, dressed in silver space suits, being escorted by officials have gone viral.The men were arrested after the businessman complained to the police. He said Virender Mohan Brar told him the testing would be done by "scientists of Defence Research and Development Organisation" who "worked for him", and asked him to invest for huge profits. The victim signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) and paid Rs 87.2 lakh on different occasions for arranging special anti-radiation suits to be worn by scientists during testing, fees of the scientists and for chemicals required for testing. Soon he informed the police about the defrauding and got them arrested. He again entered into an MoU and paid Rs 5.6 lakh, Rs 3.5 lakh and Rs 42 lakh for the same stuff he had paid earlier.

The cheats tell their victims that the RP will be purchased by NASA/DRDO for thousands of crores but the organizations will test it before purchasing. This time the testing was scheduled in Himachal's Dhramshala and was eventually called off because the sky was not clear. He further came to know that he has been cheated by a group of con artists.

During the investigation, the RP' copper plate, anti-radiation scientist suits of NASA and anti-radiation chemical stickers were seized from their possession.

Brar, was running a motor workshop during 1990s and used to assist his father but was unable to generate good income.

The conmen told the victim that NASA was willing to pay around ₹375 billion for a device called the "Rice Puller".
