 Mokokchung police on Tuesday arrested one person in connection with forgery and issuing fake appointment orders to various government departments. The issue came to light on Monday when one of the victims reportedly came to submit the appointment order/joining report at the deputy commissioner’s office Mokokchung with a fake appointment order containing the forged signature of the deputy commissioner. 

Immediately the police was alerted and an investigation ensued in this regard. Within 24 hours, Mokokchung police led by the investigation officer SI Akok Pongen managed to arrest the accused. Subsequently the accused confessed to the crime and is now in police remand. 
The accused has been identified as Moarenba, 30 years s/o Tongpangyanger of Khar village under Mokokchung district and presently at Yimyu ward Mokokchung. Preliminary investigation revealed that the accused has duped a total of 4 persons by issuing fake appointment orders from various government departments. The modus operandi of the accused was that he would search online for sample appointment orders and take printouts of such samples and forge the signatures as well as the seals of government officers. 
He would then sell these appointment orders under varying prices ranging from rupees one to two lakhs saying that these were backdoor appointments. It was revealed that he paid salaries to two of the victims from the money he received. He has been running this scam since last year. 
In this regard, a case has been registered under multiple sections of the Indian Penal Code, case no. 0029/18 U/S 419/465/420/500 IPC. Further investigations are on.
