‘WHEN Gajendra Kharatmal was rejected by the police force in Mumbai for not meeting the minimum height requirement, he didn’t give up.

An examiner said: ”So we asked him to stand there once again. The second time, we felt something hard hidden in his hair and discovered a piece of wood.”

The 5ft 1in would-be cop has been arrested on charges of cheating and is currently out on bail.

Police spokesman A K A Kaiser said: ”On his second attempt Kharatmal was aware he would be rejected for the same reason. To get selected, he adopted this approach.”’
