2 Gurugram guesthouse owners arrested for using police officer’s forged signature

Two owners of a guest house in Gurugram have been convicted for allegedly using the false signature of former DCP-East Maqsood Ahmed in the property’s check-in and check-out register, police said on Wednesday.

The matter came to light when area police officers, during a routine check, examined the register of the Moon Light Inn guesthouse in Sector 38 on the night of April 17, they said.

A certificate pasted on the first page of the register bore the signature of Ahmed, who was transferred from Gurugram on February 13.

During further investigation, the certificate was not found registered with the SIS branch, according to a complaint filed by ASI Anil Kumar.

”The owners of the guesthouse Ashwani and Pankaj Mohan have failed to comply with the conditions of operation of the guesthouse. They used a fake police department certificate,’ the complaint states.

”The accused fabricated the false document by scanning and altering an old certificate. We are carrying out raids and the accused guest house owners will soon be arrested,” Sadar Police Station SHO Inspector Dinesh Kumar said.

Based on the complaint, an FIR was filed against the duo under ICC Sections 188 (disobeying an order duly issued by an official), 420 (cheating), 467 (tampering with securities of value), 468 (false for the purpose of cheating), 471 (using a false document), 120-B (criminal association), police said.
