Priyanka had no criminal intent in posing as a police official. She merely wanted to impress her husband, Sanjay Patel, who works in a private firm.

Inspector H C Rathwa of railway police said the girl was in love with Sanjay and had told him before marriage that she was in the RPF.

“To hide the truth, Priyanka used to wear a police uniform regularly and pretend to be going on her duty,” said inspector Rathwa.

“Priyanka got the surname ‘Patel’ after getting married to Sanjay. Before that her name used to be Priyanka Sharma,” Rathwa added.
