Sudhir Kumar (62), a resident of Alawalpur in Muzaffarnagar, had been working as a driver with UP State Road Transport Corporation on fake papers.
He retired two years ago from the Khatauli Roadways bus depot.
A complaint was lodged about his fake educational certificates to secure the job after which the court ordered action.
According to police, complainant Deepak Tandon, who is known to the accused, alleged that Kumar’s date of birth on his certificates from class 1 to 10 is August 15, 1965 whereas his real date of birth is August 15, 1961.
Kumar procured certificates from an educational institution to meet the age requirement for the UPSRTC job.
Khatauli police station SHO Mukesh Kumar said, “On the basis of the court’s order, the accused on Tuesday was booked under IPC sections 420 (cheating), 467 (forgery), 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating) and 471 (using as genuine a forged document or electronic record).” He added, “No arrest has been made so far. We are further investigating the matter.”
