A former employee of a joint venture between Tata Motors and HCM, Japan who allegedly created a fake email ID of Tata Group chairman Cyrus Mistry, reportedly to get a job in Jaguar Land Rover Limited in London, was arrested here on Tuesday.
The accused was identified as Vishal Tank, a mechanical engineer from Isanpur, who aspired to get a job in Tata Group. Crime branch officials said he earlier worked as an assistant manager with Tata Hitachi Construction Machinery in Jharkhand.
Legal manager of Tata Motors Ltd (Gujarat) Ajay Tripathi had filed a complaint with the cyber crime cell of Ahmedabad Crime Branch. The cyber crime cell said the complaint stated that they had received a recommendation letter in Cyrus Mistry’s name, from an email ID (firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com>) attached with Tank’s biodata, recommending officials to recruit him in Jaguar Land Rover Ltd unit of London in the purchase department of the supply chain.
When authenticity of the email was checked, company officials found it was fake and lodged a complaint. ACP (Cyber Crime Cell), Ahmedabad Crime Branch, K N Patel, said, “He has confessed to his crime and we have seized the laptop and dongle he used to create the fake ID. We are questioning him to see if he used this ID to get through in any other units of the company.”
