Excelsior Correspondent
SRINAGAR, July 17: The High Court today directed the Inspector General of Police Crime Branch to oversee the investigation carried in fake certificate scam in Directorate of Indian System of Medicine (ISM).
The Division Bench of Justice Ramalingam Sudhakar and Justice M K Hanjura directed the IGP Crime to oversee the investigation in FIR 18/2016 and if the fraud has been proved then expose those who are involved in the crime so that it would be a lesson for those who try to use the official position for their extraneous considerations.
“This leaves us the question as to what directions should be given in this PIL. It is seen that the Director Vigilance Organization has referred the matter to the CB and FIR has already been registered”, court said.
“……If the allegations of fraud and manipulation of documents as alleged in the complaint is proved, then they shall expose the culprits so that it will be a lesson to other persons who try to use official machinery for extraneous consideration to commit fraud”, Justice Lingam and Justice Hanjura recorded in judgment.
Court directed that the investigation into the matter shall be concluded as expeditiously as possible.
It is alleged that all the Dawasaz certificates appended  to the petition as well as others the record of which be summoned from the office of Director be quashed and set aside.
It was also prayed that the authorities be directed to register FIR under prevention of corruption act against the Director ISM till investigation is completed so that the records be protected from being forged.
