Indian police are looking for a man who is allegedly Abu Dhabiof royal family and fled a luxury hotel where he lived for months without paying hefty bills.

The man, identified as Mohammad Sharif, fled the Leela Palace hotel in the capital delhi Lived there for four months and paid bills of 23,00,000 rupees (£23,022). The man was charged with fraud and theft, according to a complaint filed Saturday by hotel management.

According to police, the man claimed to be an employee of Sheikh Falah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s office and provided a fake business card. He allegedly told staff he was on a business trip in India and gave them a UAE resident card.

The hotel management added that the man had written a postdated check for Rs 20,000,000 (£20,000) due on November 21, which was presented to the bank the next day but returned due to insufficient funds.
