The Special Investigation Team who is taking care of Beulah M. Sam's case have identified Anthony Thomas, a Bachelor of Computer Applications student for being in touch with Beulah on a regular basis on phone. On tracking calls of Beulah, they found Thomas on the list since 18th of September.

The youth is from Kerala and on this case he was brought to Bangalore for investigation. Anthony said that he met Beulah for the first time in a bus stop at Kollam, Kerala and on beginning a conversation with her, she said that she was a scientist from ISRO. She also promised to get a job for Anthony and gave him her phone number. She asked him to mail his resume to her.

A 44-year-old woman created a scare after she breached layers of security to gain entry into the headquarters of Indian Space Research Organisation here using a fake identity before being arrested. Presenting the fake ID, Buela M Sam from Ahmedabad stayed at the ISRO Satellite Centre guest-house at Jeevanbheema Nagar here for two days from September 19. Two days later, she also gained entry into the high- security "Anthariksh Bhavan".

ISRO sources said she may not have swiped her card to enter as requried. In all probability, she may have just waved her card to the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel, who apparently allowed her in around 11 am on September 21. CISF personnel questioned her but her answers were totally inconsistent. Intelligence bureau sleuths questioned her the next day but could not get consistent response from her.

Her fake card said she worked at "ISRO Mangalore", while the space agency has no unit there. Inquiries revealed that that she is from Ahmedabad, from where her husband, Alexander, was summoned and questioned. During interrogation, he claimed that his wife is "mentally ill" and the family was unaware that she had travelled to Bangalore, the sources said.

The staff of the photo studio where Beulah made her fake ID card  have been taken into custody. This lady is actually identified to have Grandiose delusional disorder. The patients with this disorder are suspected to have an exaggerated sense of themselves. However, the investigation is still going
