The brief facts of the case are that Crime Branch Kashmir received a complaint, alleging therein that one Abdul Rashid Laway Employee of R&B Division Pulwama has fraudulently prepared fictitious family pension case of his father in favour of his wife in place of actual claimant, the statement added.
Subsequently a PV under No. 126/15 was initiated at Crime Branch Kashmir. During the course of enquiry, it revealed that the accused persons in furtherance of criminal conspiracy with the concerned officials of R&B Division Pulwama have resorted to falsification of documents and have thereby processed a family pension case in favour of daughter in law of the deceased i.e. wife of accused and reflected Fazi Begum as wife of Abdul Rahim Laway (deceased), when the fact is that the said Mst Fazi Begum was her daughter- in-Law. On the basis of false documents the family pension was settled by the competent authority and a huge amount was found to have been received as pension by the wife of accused, as the actual claimant i.e. Janna w/o deceased employees had expired before the death of Ab. Rahim Laway.
Subsequently the act of omission and Commission on the part of accused persons Prima facie disclosed the commission of offence punishable U/S 420, 468, 471 RPC and accordingly the instant case was registered at police Station Crime Branch Kashmir and investigation set into motion.
During the course of investigation, it has been established that the accused persons in criminal conspiracy with each other prepared illegal pension case by preparing fake pension pension book, descriptive roll certificate and life certificate in favour of Fazi Begum, which caused loss of RS. 9.5 lacs to the state exchequer, the statement concluded.
