Fake ‘PMO Director’ held by Delhi police

PM Modi
New Delhi: Delhi Police Special Cell has arrested a man masquerading as a director in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s office (PMO), reports said on Wednesday.

The man nabbed by the Special Cell has been identified as Kanhaiya Kumar. He’s also known as Dr. KK.

He was arrested on Monday from Sector 100 in Noida, the reports said.

Kanhaiya Kumar, who posed as a director in the PMO, had even mentioned PMO’s room number (152) as the address in his visiting card.

It is alleged that Kumar even tried to dupe the Central Vigilance Commissioner by asking him to help an Indian Defence Accounts Services (IDEAS) officer secure a lucrative post.

The CVC contacted the PMO and confirmed his appointment in the office.

Kanhaiya Kumar used to seek favours from the government officials and the bureaucrats whom he met frequently.

Kumar even possessed an SUV which had a Government of India (GOI) sticker pasted to it.

The Delhi Police had received a tip-off about him on October 17 and the case was then assigned to its Special Cell.

He was produced before the chief metropolitan magistrate Deepak Sehrawat at Patiala House Courts on Tuesday and then taken on a 10-day remand.

The police are also investigating Kanhaiya Kumar’s close friend in Hyderabad who got his visiting cards printed.

Kumar has been charged with impersonation, forgery, criminal conspiracy and cheating.
