Chandigarh, September 23

Constable Manjinder Singh has been arrested for duping several persons by impersonating as a PA to Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh. He used Truecaller app to falsely project himself as a senior officer.

DGP Dinkar Gupta has directed the Special DGP, Punjab Armed Police, to dismiss the constable. The accused was acquitted in three cases earlier. Recruited as a constable in 2006, he was at present deployed as a Sentry at 1st IRB, Patiala.

The police action was initiated after Vijay N Zade, Secretary, Expenditure, and Director, Mining, said he had been receiving calls from a person claiming that he was speaking from the CM's residence. On checking, it was found that no such person was on duty at the CM's residence or office. However, the Truecaller app showed that the call emanated from "CM house in Chandigarh", Gupta said. The accused used to call up various officers posing as Kuldeep Singh, PA to CM. Eight mobile phones were seized from his possession. — TNS
