A man in India is accused of going nearly two years without paying the bill at a five-star hotel in the city, Delhi.
After discovering the potential swindle 603 days into the man’s stay, managers at the Roseate House near Delhi airport filed a complaint with police.
He is said to owe the hotel around 5 million rupees ($70,000; £55,000).
According to the allegation, the guy conspired with subordinates to conceal the increasing invoices. There have been no arrests.
Despite the fact that the incident was reported to Delhi police on May 24, information have just lately appeared in the local media.
According to the Indian Express newspaper, the unknown individual checked into the hotel on 30 May 2019 after booking a room for a single night and stayed there till 22 January 2022.
Even though he did not pay, one of the employees allegedly kept extending his stay, according to the report.
Details of how this was accomplished include tampering with other guests’ bills – or simply switching one for the other.
There have been no names offered.
“According to hotel policy, if a guest owes the hotel more than 50,000 rupees, the staff must notify the seniors and press the guest for payment.” This, however, was not done,” a senior police official told the paper.
