BSc grad forges PM's signature for typist's job in HC

A 30-year-old BSc graduate was so desperate for a government job that he created a fake letterhead of the prime minister's office (PMO) and forged the signature of none other than Narendra Modi. 

Sanjay Kumar, a private firm employee from Belagavi, had applied for a typist's job in various government departments but didn't get through. He then decided to try his luck by forging the PMO's recommendation letter. The "letter", complete with Modi's "signature", extolled Kumar's academic qualifications (BSc) and typing skills, and recommended that he be given a suitable job. 

Kumar sent the letter by post to the high court registrar. The registrar got suspicious after seeing the letter and enquired with the PMO whether it had sent any such letter. The PMO replied in the negative. The registrar filed a complaint at the Vidhana Soudha police station on December 17. 

Police went to Belagavi to trace the post and tracked down Kumar. He has been booked for cheating and forgery and remanded in police custody.
