Mohali, November 29
In a five-year-old case of forged signatures of certain senior officials on attendance registers of high-level meetings of Punjab School Education Board (PSEB), the Mohali police today registered a case of impersonation against an unidentified official of the board.

Police said a case under Sections 419, 468 and 120-B of the IPC has been registered against an unidentified person at Phase 8 police station, today.

Notably, the authorities of Punjab School Education Board (PSEB) have failed to solve the five-year-old case in which signatures of certain senior officials were found forged on the attendance registers of a meeting of the board’s Regulation Committee on December 3, 2007 and some other board meetings, which had taken place on March 20, May 13 and August 6 in 2008. These members/officers were not present in the meetings.

“This illegal act was done to show that there was full quorum in those meetings. Certainly, by showing this, some officials wanted to incur some benefits”, said an official of PSEB.

Last week, Gurinder Pal Singh Batth, PSEB secretary, had sent a communiqué to Mohali SSP, asking him to register an FIR against an unidentified person. The step was taken after directions from Punjab Government in this regard.
