After a photograph depicting UT deputy commissioner Mohammed Shayin along with a female administration official in a sexually suggestive position was uploaded on the internet, the police on Friday filed a criminal case of forgery and defamation against the yet unidentified suspect following a complaint lodged by Shayin.

According to sources, the photo, which has gone viral on social networking websites over the last few days, has created ripples among administration officials as well as city residents.

The sources added that Shayin brought the matter to the notice of UT senior superintendent of police (SSP)Sukhchain Singh Gill, asking the police’s cyber crime cell to find out who had posted the photo on the internet, which he said was clearly intended to sully his image.

A case had been registered at the Sector-17 police station under sections 465 (forgery), 468 (forgery with intent to cheat) and 469 (forgery to cause serious harm to reputation) of the Indian Penal Code, and also sections 66, 67 and 71 of the Information Technology Act, the police said.
