Hyderabad: A 40-year-old real estate broker was arrested by the central crime station (CCS) police in connection with the case of the forged letter issued in the name of retired IAS officer S. Narsing Rao, Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister.
According to the complaint from Mr Rao, he learnt from some officials that a letter was roaming in government offices in his name, and found that the letter asked for land regularisation of Hussainabad Housing Society in Sy.No.66/1, Serilingamp-ally Mandal as per the government order MS. No 166 dated 16.2 2008. Mr Rao was shocked at the bogus letter in his name and immediately approached the CCS police and lodged a complaint on Tuesday. The probe revealed that the con artist who created the bogus letter was a real estate broker, Md Mohammed Shaffic Ahmed, resident of Ramanthapur. Detective Inspector R. Govinda Reddy, who investigated the case, told Deccan Chronicle: “The accused who gained knowledge about the system during the course of his work, wanted to take advantage of the loopholes. He got access to the letter of Aarogyasri which was written in the same format, forged the signature and changed the matter.”
