Govt staff booked for forging certificate: The city crime branch police on Sunday registered a case against a man, who forged class X certificate and joined as a junior assistant in the water resources department under the public works department in 2007.
Ethiraj, chief engineer in the water resources department, had lodged a complaint against Krishnakumar of Sowripalayam. “He joined as a junior assistant on compassionate grounds on November 15, 2007 and was posted in Erode. During the time of joining, he had produced his class X certificate. On March 5, 2014, he was transferred and posted at Coimbatore PWD office. The department verified his certificate with the help of the school education department and came to know that it was forged. The Madras high court had ordered to take departmental action against Krishnakumar and gave him a chance to produce the original. But he failed to produce it and went absconding,” the complaint said.

Crime branch has registered a case against Krishnakumar under Sections 468, 471 and 420 of the Indian Penal Code. tnn
