A Delhi court on Thursday sent to judicial custody for 14 days a former media officer of the Organising Committee (OC) of the 2010 Commonwealth Games (CWG) in a forgery case.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Gautam Manan sent former OC deputy director-general (protocol and media relations) Nachiketa Kapur to judicial custody till October 3. He was arrested on charges of using a forged degree to get the job.

Kapur was on interim bail for two days, granted by the court Sep 18, to attend the cremation rituals of his father who died September 7.

He was arrested last week after he surrendered in court. Police booked him for forgery, cheating and criminal conspiracy for allegedly using a forged graduation degree to bag the job.
