MP Karan Singh's sign forged again

Senior Congress leader and Member of Parliament Karan Singh approached Delhi Police after he found that his signature was forged to gain undue favours from an US-based organisation.

The Rajya Sabha member complained that a person forged his signature in a letter regarding the functioning of the Indian National Overseas Congress in New York.

“This letter has been sent through an e-mail This ID may kindly be investigated because it does not exist with us. This is a very serious matter of cyber crime,” Singh said in his complaint.

A case has been registered at the Tughlak Road police station under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and Information Technology Act.

In June, two youths were arrested in south Delhi’s Sangam Vihar area for forging Singh’s signature and letterhead to get waitlisted tickets of Indian Railways confirmed.

Among the arrested was Devender Kumar, the mastermind of the gang who was running the racket for seven to eight months.

Several counterfeit letterheads and seals of various MPs were recovered. Action was taken after Singh wrote a letter to then Delhi Police commissioner B K Gupta on June 8 to complain about two letters, addressed to Union railway minister Mukul Roy and purportedly signed by him.
