Srinagar, Aug 01: 
 
The Economic Offences Wing, Srinagar (Crime Branch Kashmir), has filed a charge-sheet against two persons before the Anti-Corruption Court, Srinagar for their alleged involvement in a forgery case. 
The accused are charged under various Sections of RPC (Ranbir Penal Code), along with Sections 5(1) and 5(2) of P.C. Act.
The case, registered as FIR number 60/2016 at P/S Crime Branch Kashmir, came to light when the Crime Branch received a communication from Tehsildar (South) Srinagar, accompanied by evidence revealing the accused's fraudulent activities. The accused were part of a criminal conspiracy to dishonestly prepare fake and forged revenue extracts.
According to the spokesperson, the accused presented these forged revenue extracts at J&K Bank, Branch Unit Hari Singh High Street, Srinagar, in an attempt to secure a loan. However, the bank authorities became suspicious and referred the documents to the complainant Tehsildar (South) Srinagar for authentication. Upon verification, the revenue extracts were confirmed to be counterfeit.
The Crime Branch, Kashmir initiated an investigation in 2016, during which the allegations against the accused were substantiated. As a result, the charge-sheet has been presented against them before the Anti-Corruption Court in Srinagar for further legal proceedings.
