Before retirement, Raj cop booked for fraud to get job



Jaipur: Thirty-three years after he joined the Rajasthan Police under reserved quota, an inspector on the verge of his retirement was on Thursday booked for allegedly producing fake caste certificate to get his job.

"Prem Chand got the job of a constable in 1979 in Tonk as a Scheduled Caste candidate and in ASI recruitment in 1983, he produced a fake ST certificate," Gopal Lal, investigation officer into the case said here today.

"Chand, currently posted as an CID inspector in Ajmer, will retire on March 31," he said.

The matter came to light some time back after a social activist informed the department of it.
