Civilian pretending to be a cop arrested in Jammu’s Doda district

Identified as Neeraj Kumar, he would work with other cops at Naka points, Inquiry ordered

Jammu, Sep 15: Jammu and Kashmir police Tuesday arrested a civilian who was performing duties as a police sub-inspector in Doda district of Jammu region, officials said.

Reliable sources said that Bollywood movie ‘Phataposter Nikla Hero’ in which famous actor Shahid Kapoor would act as a fake police officer had motivated the civilian from Doda, who during interrogation has claimed, he wanted to serve people.

A senior police officer told that an information was received by Doda police about a civilian who was working with the police by pretending to be a police sub-inspector. “The person was identified as Neeraj Kujmar, of Arnora, Doda. He would remain deployed with the other policemen at Naka points in Doda and would wear proper police uniform with SI rank badges on his shoulders,” the officer said.

“The arrested person would also join duties with other security forces personnel on important points,” the official said, adding that “an in-house inquiry has been ordered to find out how the civilian mingled with cops.”

He said the police verification has revealed that the civilian had never attended police recruitment neither was he having any connection with the police. “He was merely pretending as the police SI,” the official said, adding that “a case in FIR 164/2020 have been registered in Doda police station and investigation is going on.”—(KNO)
