On a report of Sh. Kartikeshwar Samal, SP, Special Branch, Odisha, Bhubaneswar regarding circulation of a fake and fabricated letter in the name of State Intelligence Branch, Kharvel Nagar PS case no. 85 dated 18.03.2019 under section 465, 468, 469, 471 IPC has been registered.
The FIR states that there is no section in the Intelligence Directorate in the name of 'SIB Political Desk'. Neither the letter has been issued from any of the offices of the Intelligence Directorare. There have been manipulation and fabrication of the purported letter.
The case is under investigation.
This is very low level trick. A similar trick was created during the Karnataka assembly elections when Siddharmaiya contested from two assembly seats. It shows how low a political party can go when people have rejected them.
