If you’re dreading a trip with your girlfriend, that’s probably a sign that you should consider ending things.
If you’re dreading a trip with your girlfriend, that’s probably a sign that you should consider ending things. If you’re dreading a trip with your girlfriend while you’re married with a child, that is definitely a sign that you should end things. But that’s not how a travel agent from India handled the situation.
Motaparthi Vamshi Krishna, 32, was arrested by Hyderabad, India, police for emailing a fake hijack threat to avoid a trip to Mumbai and Goa with his girlfriend, CNN reports. Police say he pretended to be a woman who overheard six men planning to hijack planes in Hyderabad, Chennai, and Mumbai. Authorities beefed up security at the respective airports, but they also tracked down the IP address of an Internet cafe and used video footage to narrow it down to Krishna.
Krishna confessed to the crime and said he did it because he couldn’t afford to take his girlfriend on the trip she wanted. He created a fake ticket for the trip and then emailed the faux hijack tip. He’s been hit with four charges, including impersonation and providing false information. If convicted he could face up to five years in prison and a fine of $150.
B. Limba Reddy, a police commissioner who led the investigation, said, “He didn’t have the money, but if he canceled because of that, it would have hurt his pride, and his friendship with the girl would’ve come to an end. So, his thinking was that if the flight was to be canceled and it was because of the airport, he wouldn’t be at fault.”
Now he’s most definitely at fault. And we can’t imagine his pride or the relationship are holding up very well, either.
