Chennai: A day after the Madras High Court pulled up Tamil Nadu Uniformed Services Recruitment Board (TNUSRB) for submitting a bogus expert opinion in court, the Chennai city crime branch arrested G. V. Kumar for forgery and cheating on Tuesday.

The CCB has lodged a cheating case against two people including Kumar (51) and a retired maths teacher Moorthy (62) employed in KV school in IIT-M.  An investigating officer said, “As per the instructions of the Madras high court, we have not arrested the retired school teacher since he had submitted a report to the TNUSRB which is under enquiry. But we have arrested Kumar for introducing Moorthy to the TNUSRB officials claiming him to be an IIT-M professor.”

 

The case is about recruitment for the post of sub-inspector (fingerprint) in 2018. S Arunachalam a grade II constable who applied for the post but missed selection by half a mark. He approached the high court alleging that he missed out on the score due to a wrong answer key.  

TNUSRB officials sought the help of Kumar when the Madras high court asked them to submit an expert opinion from an IIT-Madras professor or a retired professor for rejecting a candidate who applied for a fingerprint bureau sub-inspector post. Kumar hid the fact that Murthy worked as a school teacher and introduced him as retired IIT-M professor Dr D. Murthi and obtained his opinion and gave it to the TNUSRB officials on March 1 last, which was later submitted to the court.

Based on the complaint, the CCB officials have registered a case of forgery, forged documents and cheating against G V Kumar and Moorthy. G V Kumar was arrested and remanded to judicial custody.
