Ruby Choudhari, who is facing charges for illegally staying on the campus of Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration (LBSNAA) at Mussoorie, was produced before a court and sent to jail in Dehradun on Saturday afternoon.
Ruby was arrested from a city hotel on Friday night. Later, police took her to a local hospital for a medical examination before producing her in the court on Saturday.
Uttarakhand DGP B S Sidhu said police have also registered the statement of LBSNAA security guard Deb Singh under Section 164 of the CrPC.
“I have already constituted a Special Investigation Team headed by Shahjahan Ansari, Sector Officer of Dehradun’s CB-CID branch, for probing the case,” Sidhu told The Sunday Express.
The academy has already suspended the security guard and initiated a departmental enquiry against him for subleting a government quarter. Ruby’s belongings were reportedly kept at the house of Deb Singh.
Ruby’s lawyer Suyash Kukreti said police have also moved an application seeking her Police Custody Remand. “We opposed the police plea for PCR. The court will hear our plea on the police application for the PCR on Monday,” he said.
On March 31, LBSNAA’s administrative officer (security) Satyavir Singh had lodged a case under Sections 420, 467, 468, 471 and 170 of the IPC against Ruby, a native of Kutubi village of UP’s Muzaffarnagar district. The woman allegedly stayed at the academy masquerading as a probationer and a library employee.
Ruby, on her part, had appeared before mediapersons in Dehradun to narrate her side of the story.
On Friday, the SIT had visited LBSNAA and collected information in connection with the case.
The academy has handed over to the SIT documentary records seized from Ruby as well as the video recording and CCTV footage relevant to the case.
