52-yr-old held for entering ISRO centre with fake ID

A 52-year-old man entered the sensitive area of ISRO's cryogenic engine testing centre at Mahendragiri near here using a fake identity card and was arrested along with two others who facilitated his ingress.

The police said Jaya Singh, who is the father-in-law of the space agency's contract employee Krishnakumar, had entered the area using a fake ID card given by him and an ISRO contractor Diraviyam before he was picked up on suspicion by CISF personnel. Singh gave contradictory replies when questioned.

Singh, an employee of the Oman Government Transport Corporation, claimed he only tried to look at the centre where the cryogenic engine was tested but he also entered the liquid propulsion testing area. Krishnakumar and Diraviyam were arrested for giving him the fake ID card. All three have been booked on charges including trespass, forgery and violation of the Official Secrets Act.
