Imposter threatens T-Series Director in the name of PM Manmohan Singh
An imposter, who tried to browbeat the director of Super Cassette
Industries in the name of political bigwigs, is being investigated by
the Crime Branch of Delhi Police. According to sources, an
unidentified caller spoke in the voice of BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha, RJD
leader Lalu Prasad Yadav, and the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh
seeking some favours for an ex-employee of the company.
Police said that the complaint was lodged by the 60-year-old director
of Super Cassette Industries, Ved Parkash Chanan, a resident of
Greater Kailash-II. “The complainant told the police that for the last
few months, he had been receiving threatening calls posing as these
prominent politicians,” a senior police officer said, adding that the
caller also threatened him of dire consequences if he ever informed
anyone about this matter.
The complainant was shaken after receiving so many calls and he
decided to meet the concerned politicians. He was in for a rude shock
when he was told that none of these politicians had ever called him.
“The complainant informed the investigators that few weeks ago, his
manager Beer Singh received a call wherein the caller posed as PM
Manmohan Singh and asked him to do a favour to Kishan Kumar an
ex-employee who was sacked around six months ago. The caller asked
for the re-appointmen of Kumar with a promotion. He further threatened
to hurt his family if he did not fulfil the demands,” the officer
It was then that the complainant decided to inform police and sent the
e-mail ID and recordings of their conversation to Delhi Police
Commissioner BS Bassi. Based on the victim’s complaint, a case has
been registered under Sections 419, 507 and 120-B of the Indian Penal
Code (IPC) and the case is being investigated by the Inter State Cell
of Crime Branch. “We are scanning the call detail records (CDR) of the
victim’s cell phone and probing an ex-employee, Kumar, for further
investigation,” the officer added.
