The Delhi Police is investigating the fake online application submitted to the central reserve police force under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s name for a recruitment test this year.
A case under IT Act provisions was registered with Cyber Crime unit of economic offences wing on July 26 based on a complaint by the central para military force, an official said.
Various wings of Delhi Police, including the Special Cell, were roped in to crack the case, sources said.
Police are trying to nab the culprit based on the IP address of the user who filled the form online and then downloaded the admit card which had Modi’s photo affixed to it as well.
The application was detected before the physical standard test, leading to the admit card being cancelled on July 15. Also, the fake candidate did not appear for the standard test, meant for the position of head constable, though the admit card was downloaded before it was cancelled.
The application form (Roll No 2430026090) was filled with fake details like candidate’s name -- Narendra Modi, father’s name -- Rarendra Modi, mother’s name -- Raj, a photograph of Modi and indicating Group Centre CRPF Rampur as centre for examination.
The generation of admit cards for recruitment in CRPF is done through online (internet-based) mode. The admit card can be downloaded from website only by the applicant with personal details like application number, name and date of birth, among others, a CRPF statement said.
