The Pulakeshi Nagar police on Friday filed a charge sheet against Khushbu Sharma, who was arrested in November 2016 for duping multiple people of their money and valuables.

Khushbu, 28, who is physically disabled, is wanted in over 250 cases In Delhi, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka.

“Claiming to be a Supreme Court advocate or an IAS officer, she stole Rs 2 lakh from a Bengaluru advocate, Sanket Yenagi,” the Pulakeshi Nagar inspector said.

According to the police, Khushbu lost her right hand in a train accident. “She had failed Class 8 and had also managed to obtain a fake graduation certificate. She had fled home and began cheating people for survival,” police said.

Khushbu had set up a fake Facebook ID, with claims of being an IAS officer. She used to contact academics, politicians and celebrities online.

“Once she befriended them, she would meet them for coffee and later steal their valuables by threatening to implicate them in rape cases.

Khushbu was also involved in a car-jacking incident in Delhi in 2015. “She had taken a lift from a man one evening. As the ride was a long one, she managed to befriend the man and had asked him if he was interested in getting intimate with her. She had also offered to buy contraception. However, the man stopped at a medical store and when he got down, she drove away with the car,” the inspector said.

She was arrested by the Malviya Nagar police in Delhi but had managed to abscond. The Pulakeshi Nagar Police have recorded statements of over 35 people and have also obtained information from police of other states.

Police said that Khushbu’s parents had divorced when she was young and she lived with her father in Jaipur. She speaks Hindi and English fluently.

“She was staying at a paying guest in Indiranagar since April 2016. She had also stolen a laptop and some cash from an engineer in Jeevanbhima Nagar,” the inspector added.
