May 11, 2023 05:48 PM

Pilibhit (Uttar Pradesh), May 11 || An assistant teacher, who submitted a fake Covid-19 positive medical certificate to get exemption from polling duty in the municipal elections, has been booked.

The action was taken against her after the block education officer, Vijay Virendra Singh, filed a complaint at the Pilibhit Kotwali police station following written orders of the district's basic shiksha adhikari Devendra Swaroop.

The incident took place in Puranpur tehsil of Pilibhit district.

The accused, identified as Renu Tomar, reportedly submitted a fake report to Chief Development Officer Dharmendra Pratap Singh on May 8 during poll staff training.

The report was found to be counterfeit during verification and was registered to another person. Tomar has been booked under several sections of the IPC, including cheating and forgery.

She is yet to be arrested, said SHO Naresh Tyagi.
