A man wanted for rape in Jammu and Kashmir was arrested after fooling the police into flying him to Jammu in a helicopter often used for ferrying VVIPs.

After being charged with rape earlier this month, the man had fled to his hometown n Rajouri.

According to reports, he then scammed compensation for victims of an accident and then had himself flown to Jammu on the helicopter posing as a victim.

The police have blamed the doctors for certifying him as a victim of the bus accident, leading to the embarrassing lapse.

The man has been accused of raping a girl in a jungle in Manja Kote in Rajouri district earlier this month.
