JAMMU: The Jammu and Kashmir Police on Monday filed a charge sheet against a policeman and his associate for fraudulently obtaining a driving license to score additional points during his recruitment.

Nand Kumar of Mari Pouni village of Reasi, who is presently serving as constable in IRP third battalion, along with his associate Amarjeet Singh of Bakshi Nagar Jammu were named in the charge sheet filed in the court of Railway Magistrate Jammu for judicial determination, a spokesperson of the crime branch said.
