A woman, said to mentally challenged, was arrested by the Bangalore police for entering the heavily-guarded Indian Space Research Organisation premises using fake ID cards.

A mentally challenged woman has been arrested for unauthorised entry into the high security Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) premises, police said today.

Police said that the 44-year-old woman has been identified as Jula N Sam, a native of Ahmedabad.

Jula was arrested on September 21 for trying to sneak into a meeting being held at ISRO headquarters with a fake ID card, police said.

Border Security Force (BSF) sub-inspector Rama Rao grew suspicious about her movements and questioned her and after a brief enquiry she was handed over to Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) Inspector Lakshman Singh and later a police complaint was lodged, sources said. 

Police said Jula had visited Kollam in Kerala to attend the last rites of her father on September 19 and after that, came to Bangalore the same night and stayed at ISRO's guest house at Jeevan Beemanagar, around 10 km from the ISRO headquarters, by producing a fake ID card.

She had obtained the card from a photo studio at Kollam, police said.

Police booked Jula under various IPC sections including 471 (using as genuine a forged document or electronic record), 420 (cheating) and 490 (breach of contract of service during voyage or journey).

Police said Jula's husband, who is in the city, claimed that his wife is mentally challenged.
