Senior Kashmir police officer retired for fudging date of birth
Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir government has retired a senior police officer who was found to have fudged his date of birth and sought to prolong his service by two years.
Inspector General of Police, Security, Farooq Ahmad, has been retired after he was found to have fudged with his original date of birth. As per the original date of birth, Ahmad should have retired in February 2009.
An inquiry committee of the state home department found that Ahmad had tampered with the records in a manner that would have enabled him to retire in November 2011.
Official sources said the home department conveyed its decision to the officer on Friday night.
This is for the first time that such a senior officer has been told to go from service in such a manner.
"It`s a message to all those who tamper with records," an official said on Saturday.
