The police have lodged an FIR against two persons for their alleged involvement in submitting a fake police verification form with the details of Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi.

On Thursday, a police verification form, ‘verifying’ Rahul Gandhi as a domestic help at three houses in HRC Professional Hub apartments in Vaibhav Khand, Indirapuram had surfaced. It had a stamp of the Ghaziabad police, along with Rahul Gandhi’s photo, name, address, occupation and father’s name.

According to the police, the ‘employer’, Arun Kumar Sharma, whose details were mentioned in the form said that he had given his original form to two housekeeping staff persons who might be involved in manipulating it.

“The resident told us that he had given the verification form to two housekeeping staff of the society, Raju and Akash, for submission. Investigations have revealed that it is these two who must have manipulated the form. An FIR under section 420 (punishment for fraud) has been lodged against the two,” said Gorakhnath Yadav, station house officer, Indirapuram police station.

However, the police said that no arrests have been made in the case so far.

“Investigations are still going on and action will only be taken after things are clearer. Along with the housekeeping staff, the representatives of the apartment owners’ association of the society and other residents are also being questioned,” he added.

Sources had said on Thursday that the form bearing Rahul Gandhi’s photograph was used by the police nearly one-and-a-half years ago. The photograph seemed to be pasted after the police seal was stamped, they said. On their part, officials from the Indirapuram police station said they found out about this form through the social media.
