Police here in Maharashtra have registered an FIR against an unidentified person for fabricating certificates from a nursing course to submit to an international agency, an official said on Sunday.
A professor at a nursing institute attached to Thane Civil Hospital filed a complaint with Thane Nagar Police Station in connection with the case on September 17.
The complainant received documents and certificates for verification on September 1 from CGFNS International, an NGO helping students and health professionals assess their educational records in order to facilitate admission to schools in the United States and to d ‘other countries.
The documents, dated December 11 last year, were reportedly issued to a woman by the nursing institute, the Thane Nagar police station official said.
During the verification, the certificates and documents were found to be forged, and the signatures and rubber stamp on them were also forged, he said.
The complainant also checked the institute’s records and found no such certificate issued by it.
The official said the complainant had received several calls from the woman and her husband asking to verify documents and certificates and forward them to the international agency.
Based on the complaint, police on Friday registered an FIR under various sections of the Indian Penal Code for cheating and forgery, he said, adding that no arrests had been made so far.
