A fake IAS meets Uttar Pradesh DGP for half hour, lands up in jail

SURESH Yadav studied up to Class 8, but he is not only fluent in English, but well versed with complex bureaucratic system in India. After duping people by impersonating as IAS official of Bihar, Orissa and West Bengal cadres as situation arose, Yadav landed up in Ghaziabad to target none other than DGP of Uttar Pradesh, Karamveer Singh, a 1975 batch IPS officer.
No wonder, the fake IAS who always carried a fake government identity card, met with the state DGP recently and impressed the state’s top cop during his half-hour-long discussion.
The fake IAS became so powerful in Ghaziabad area that he used to call police control rooms and left instructions for them. Finally, he was arrested from a hotel in Ghaziabad. But by then, the dame was done. A number of job seekers, a steel plant manager and two Kanpur-based builders had already become his victims.

A tribute to ex-cabinet secretariat official Victor Longer
During the India-China war in 1962, Victor Longer made Tezpur his base proving all information to media. Later he became director of public relations in the defence ministry. Victor Longer died in New Delhi on Saturday. He was 92.
He was the Indian Army’s key man in all communication efforts during 1971 India-Pakistan war too. He authored several books, the most popular being the “Red Coats to Olive Green”, which is the history of Indian Army.
He was roped into the cabinet secretariat in 1971 and become a key aide to late Ramnath Kao, the legendary founding chief of India’s external intelligence agency, RAW.
