BENGALURU: The sleuths of Central Crime Branch (CCB) have arrested a person who had been using someone else’s resume, documents to attain jobs at several companies. The accused has been identified as Mohammed Irfan who had been using Ravi Shankar Sharma’s documents to attain jobs.

Mohammed Irfan got acquainted with Sharma in 2008 while attending an interview. Mohammed got hold of Sharma’s testimonials and resume which he later used to get a job at M Phasis and  at Convergys.

Irfan has a voter ID, PAN Card and Aadhar Card in his own name. He also has another PAN card in  Sharma’s name. The issue came to light when Sharma, who works for a software company in Hyderabad, approached a bank for a loan. The bank refused to sanction the loan citing defaulting as the reason. On checking his credit worthiness on Credit Information Bureau (India) Ltd (CIBIL) he found that two credit cards had been issued by two banks and a loan had also been sanctioned by a finance company.
