Man arrested for producing fake documents at SSC office

Kolkata: The School Service Commission (SSC) on Monday lodged a complaint at the local police station against Arijit Das, who stepped into the SSC office with a fake verification letter on Monday morning.

Das, a resident of Nandigram in East Midnapore, entered into the office and told the staff members that he was carrying a verification letter that says his interview for Group D's post would be conducted at table number 29 on August 26.

The matter was immediately brought to the attention of SSC Chairman, Soumitra Sarkar, who went through the verification letter and found it fake.

He immediately called up the local police station and lodged a complaint later on the day with the cyber crime department. Das sat for the Group D exam in 2016 but failed to clear the examination.

Das claimed that he was introduced to Bikram Mondal by a person in his locality in 2018.

Mondal claimed himself to be an employee of the SSC office and assured Das a job at the SSC office in the Group D post. Das had paid Rs 2.5 lakh to Mondal.

Das also promised to pay another Rs 1.5 after he gets the job.

Das was held by the Bidhannagar police for further interrogation. Police have started a detailed probe.

"I went through the verification letter and found that it to be fake. The website mentioned on the letter is also fake. I immediately rang up the police station and lodged an official complaint. We have no such table as it was mentioned on the fake letter. It was an attempt by some people to malign the SSC office," SSC Chairman Sarkar said.
