New Delhi: The Delhi police on Monday has claimed to have arrested the 42-year-old make-up artist, who had allegedly modified the appearances of as many as 10 persons including Jayesh Patel, on the direction of agents involved in forging passports and identity.

The 32-year-old Patel, impersonating as an octogenarian, was nabbed on September 8 from Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport. Patel wanted to go to USA for employment but feared that he may not be granted visa, following which he planned to leave the country through agents by impersonating as 81-year-old Amrik Singh.

The police said that the accused, who was responsible for Patel’s make-up, has been identified as Shamsher Singh alias “Billu Barber,” a resident of Sector-24 in Delhi’s Rohini area.

According to DCP (IGI airport) Sanjay Bhatia, after Patel’s arrest a case under Sections 420, 468, 471, and 120B of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and 12 Public Premises (PP) Act was registered at the IGI airport police station and an investigation was taken up.

On September 15, the make-up artist, Shamsher, was apprehended. During interrogation, Shamsher revealed that to earn more money and to meet his expenses he agreed to modify the appearances of as many as 10 suspected persons, including two women, on the direction of the agents,” said the DCP.
