Bengaluru YouTuber Arrested for Faking 24Hr Airport Stay

Bengaluru: A 23-year-old YouTuber was arrested by Bengaluru police on Wednesday for allegedly spending more than 24 hours in the airport to record videos without being caught, reported The Indian Express.

As per the report, the accused named Vikas Gowda bought an Air India ticket to Chennai from Bengaluru to get into the Bengaluru airport but did not take the flight.

He entered the airport at 12.06 pm on April 7 and started recording videos claiming that he is not going to get caught. In the video, Vikas criticized the security arrangements at the airport and said that he was never questioned by any police official, even after staying there for 24 hours.

But the police investigation revealed that Vikas did not stay in the airport for 24 hours. He spent only four to five hours inside the airport and claimed that he was there for 24 hours. He is reported to have done this for publicity and to increase views of his channel.

Vikas was booked under section 505 (statements conducing to public mischief) and 448 (house of trespass) of the Indian Penal Code. He was later released on bail.
