HYDERABAD: Investigating into the job fraud that came to light when a woman walked into the state secretariat with an appointment orders for revenue department junior assistant’s job a few days ago, the Central Crime Station(CCS) Hyderabad has arrested key accused Premsagar for forging the Chief Minister’s special secretary P Rajasekhar Reddy’s signature and issuing fake job orders.
Incidentally, it was the spelling mistakes on the order copy that first raised suspicion and led to finding out it was fake. Premsagar, a resident of Kukatpally, has collected `5 lakh from a woman Nagamani on the pretext of providing job in Secretariat.
According to police, the accused himself typed a fake appointment order and handed over to Nagamani, the complainant, after collecting `5 lakh. The victim is a neighbour and acquaintance of the accused. After completing B.Com, she had approached Premsagar seeking assistance in landing a government job.
Later, he created a fake appointment letter with the forged signature of Chief Minister’s Special Secretary Rajasekhar Reddy directing the Revenue officials to provide a job in the secretariat.
When Nagamani approached officials at C Block where the Chief Minister’s office is located, officials noticed spelling mistakes in the offer letter, and grew suspicious. As they are unaware of any such posting, they inquired and found out that one Premsagar had given her the letter after collecting `5 lakh. The officials then asked the woman to approach police and lodge a complaint. Later, the CCS police registered a case charging the accused with cheating and arrested him.
