Ahmedabad Crime Branch in Gujarat state have registered a new FIR against conman Kiran Patel who conned the security establishment in Kashmir into believing him to be a PMO official and got the requisite perks prior to his arrest earlier this month.

An official said that Ahmadabad Crime branch has registered a new FIR against ‘conman’ Kiran Patel who was arrested by a team of Srinagar police on the inputs of CID department, for posing as an additional director (strategy and campaigns) in the Prime Minister’s Office and enjoyed many perks, including a bulletproof car and security cover besides other hospitality.

He said that a new FIR number 11191011230073 under section 406, 420, 170, 120 B have been registered against Kiran Patel at police station of Crime Branch of Ahmadabad in Gujarat state.

Reliable sources confirmed that Crime Branch has deputed two member team to Srinagar, where they will likely to take over the custody of Kiran Patel from Srinagar police.

The imposter had taken the J-K administration and security structure for a ride by securing Z-plus security cover, a bulletproof Mahindra Scorpio SUV, official accommodation at a five-star hotel, and a lot more,” an FIR reads.

On Thursday, after hearing the arguments of the counsel representing Patel and additional public prosecutor, the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Srinagar Raja Mohammad Tasleem found the bail plea “devoid of any merit”.

“I am of the considered opinion that arguments advanced by APP are just, proper and appealing and carries much weight and on the other hand I respectfully disagree with the submission put forth by Counsel for the applicant (Patel) because in case at this stage discretion of bail is exercised in favour of the accused it shall definitely destroy the very fabric of the investigation,” the court said.

“Resultantly, in my considered opinion the instant application is devoid of any merit which deserves to be rejected, hence rejected.” (KDC)
