On Saturday, the cyber cell of the Ahmedabad crime branch booked 40-year-old man named Ghulam Fareed Shaikh of Shahpur area of Ahmedabad for forgery after he claimed to have made Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan a member of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

According to the reports, Ghulam Fareed Shaikh misused the membership drive launched by the BJP to register not only Pakistan PM Imran Khan but also the likes of rape convicts Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, and Asaram Bapu through forgery. The accused not only forged membership forms of the BJP with these names but also reportedly circulated the e-membership cards on social media.

Ahmedabad city general secretary of BJP Kamlesh Patel said that the accused circulated the forged e-membership cards of Imran Khan, Asaram Bapu and Gurmeet Ram Rahim to tarnish the reputation of the saffron party.

Patel added that BJP had initiated membership drive since July 6 for which party had issued a cellphone number to register new members into the party. If a person uploads his personal details, photograph and cellphone number on a web link given through a text message after making a call to the party’s number, he would be given a membership card with party’s logo. This card is called e-card with a unique number being given to the member, stated the FIR according to Times Of India.

The BJP members came to know about the forgery on July 24 as Ghulam Fareed Shaikh shared these images showing e-cards of BJP primary membership of Imran Khan, Asaram Bapu and Ram Rahim Singh on social media.

A case has been registered in the cyber cell against Fareed Shaikh under IPC section 465 (forgery), IPC section 469 (forgery for purpose of harming reputation) and IPC section 471 (using as genuine a forged document or electronic record) and Section 66-C of the Information and Technology Act (punishment for identity theft).
