Bihar man who ‘worked’ for weeks at crime branch unit arrested for impersonation
KhagariaAfter Ajay Yadav was sent to judicial custody, police said on Thursday that a 24-year-old man has been arrested in eastern Bihar’s Khagaria district for allegedly impersonating a police officer.
However, the district police have refuted Yadav’s claims that he had been working out of the district crime branch office for weeks and even did security duty during chief minister Nitish Kumar’s recent visit to Saharsa-adjacent Samadhan was handed over.
Station House Officer (SHO) Sanjeev Kumar, however, denied that Ajay Yadav was deployed under the Chief Minister’s security. He said that this claim is completely fabricated.
It is not clear how the Khagaria police came to know that Yadav was not a cop.
Before being sent to jail, Yadav told local media that he was given an appointment letter by the coaching institute where he was preparing for competitive exams. he said he paid the institute A million for the letter It appears that he used this letter when he ‘reported for duty’.
In a post on Twitter, the Khagaria police said that Ajay Yadav was arrested after he came to the Chitragupt Nagar police station on Wednesday, identified himself as a crime branch officer and tried to do some work.
The police said that the documents he had produced were fake.
During the search of his rented house in Lohia Nagar area of the district, the police found three mobile phones, a laptop and a set of police uniform.
Significantly, this is not the first time in Khagaria that a person has been arrested for impersonating a police officer.
In 2021, the Khagaria police arrested Vikram Kumar, a resident of Begusarai district, on the allegation that he had been working as a police officer for two months. It was reported that he worked at the Mansi police station for two months and was part of several raids led by senior officers during this period.
