The age of said accused as per the land record of 1970 is 18 years and as such it is clear that the accused was born before 1958, not in the year 1958 as mentioned in the School leaving certificate of the said accused. Moreover, in the voter list records of Parliament, it is registered that the accused is a Non Permanent Resident of the erstwhile State of J&K. It is established that the accused was not eligible to acquire a Permanent Resident Certificate of the State and prepared fake documents i.e. PRC and School Leaving Certificate. On the basis of these documents, the said accused had procured a Govt. job in the Power Development Department by fraudulent means,” it added.

Crime Branch further stated that a formal case has been registered in Police Station Crime Branch, Jammu against the accused person and investigation has been initiated.
