From 2014 to 2018, Singh posed as an IPL cricketer for Mumbai Indians and amassed over 40 thousand followers on Instagram. In July 2022, he stayed at the Taj Palace Hotel in Mumbai for a week, leaving without paying a bill of Rs 5.53 Lakh, claiming Adidas would cover it.

A complaint was filed by the hotel’s director of security in August, and a cheating case was filed against Singh. He was finally detained at the Indira Gandhi International Airport on December 25.

Singh, a Commerce graduate from Delhi University’s Hindu College and an MBA holder from OPJS University in Rajasthan, also allegedly cheated Rishabh Pant of Rs 1.6 crore in 2021. He is currently in 2-day police custody as investigations continue.
