25-year-old gets 26 years' residence certificate!

Mohammad Abdul Mannan was very keen on going to Mecca for Haj and he had applied for a passport. He needed a proof of residence and applied for the certificate through a Nemmadi Kendra by attaching an affidavit.

As there were no supporting documents, the Revenue Inspector, without rejecting the same, sent the application to the higher officials for action. When it went to Bangarpet Tahsildar's office, he was issued the certificate without conducting the spot verification.

But the Robertson police were baffled when they were processing the application for issuing the police report. When the police sought a clarification from the tahsildar's office, they only wrote a letter recommended action against Mannan for furnishing a false affidavit.

The letter was silent on the irresponsibility action of the tahsildar's office staff. Police suspect that the officials are trying to wriggle out of the situation by shifting the blame on Mannan.
