Woman stays at IAS academy for 6 months using fake identity

She had identified herself as Ruby Choudhari, a resident of Muzaffarnagar in UP.

A woman, allegedly pretending to be an IAS officer, had illegally stayed inside the IAS training campus of Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration (LBSNAA) at Mussoorie for the last six months. The LBSNAA’s administrative officer (Security) Satyavir Singh has lodged a complaint in this regard with the Mussoorie police station on Tuesday evening.

The woman was identified as Ruby Choudhari, a resident of Kutubi village in Muzzaffarnagar district of Uttar Pradesh. However, police are still trying to ascertain the real identity of the woman, whose name has figured as accused person in the FIR. “Investigation is on. We are trying to collect details about the woman. I can’t tell you anything more in this matter right now,” Dehradun SSP Pushpak Jyoti told The Indian Express.

On the basis of documents provided to the police by the LBSNAA, the woman was in possession of an Identity Card issued by the Nainital-based Administrative Training Institute. The ID-card was under the name of Ruby Choudhari, SDM. According to the FIR, she was illegally staying on the LBSNAA’s campus since September 2014.

News about her alleged illegal stay inside the campus was first reported by security personnel on March 27. She was said to always introduce herself either as an IAS officer or Library employee during her stay at LBSNAA.

The FIR mentioned that the woman was staying in the house of one Security Guard Dev Singh. “Rubu Choudhari had possessed an ID-card issued by the ATI, Nainital. Preliminary investigation found it to be fake,” the FIR said. She used the same ID-card to enter the LBSNAA campus illegally, the FIR mentioned.

“The complainant has given a few documents, including the ID-card issued by the ATI, Nainital, Character Certificate and Driving License, besides marks-sheet of MA (Part 2). An Adhar Card issued in the name of one Veerendra Malik was also attached with the FIR,” a source in Mussoorie police station told The Indian Express.

However, the police are struggling to find leads that would help in knowing about the woman’s motive behind her stay at LBSNAA. “We are in touch with the authorities concerned of LBSNAA for collecting details about her activities during her stay inside the campus,” said sources in police.
