New Delhi: A 23-year-old man was arrested
here for allegedly posing as a Delhi Police constable attached
with the security wing of the Prime Minister and using a
forged security pass to get favours, police said today.
Vikas, hailing from Haryana`s Sonepat, was apprehended
on Singhu border picket in Outer Delhi on Sunday evening when
he approached police personnel seeking their favour to allow
his cousin to carry passengers from the border to Haryana
"He introduced himself as a constable of Delhi Police and
produced an identity card of Delhi Police (PM Security). Prima
facie, the card produced by Vikas appeared to be forged,"
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Outer) Chhaya Sharma said.
He later told police that he had worked as a labourer
with a contractor Rajpal who used to take contracts for
maintenance of parks and carpets in places the Prime Minister
was scheduled to visit.
"Temporary passes for 2-3 days were issued by PM-Security
through the contractor to work at the place of function with
the direction to deposit the same after the work is over.
"Vikas did not hand over his pass to the contractor and
started using it in buses and parking places to save the
expenses by introducing himself as constable of Delhi Police
(PM-Security)," Sharma said.
One Arvind, who had earlier worked with Rajpal, allegedly
forged the identity card for Rs 200, Sharma said.
Vikas, a diploma holder in electrical branch, is the son
of a Class-IV employee in Indian Air Force.
