A metropolitan magistrate’s court on Wednesday directed the Mumbai police to investigate and register a First Information Report on a complaint that city-based actor Navneet Kaur submitted false documents to obtain a caste certificate.
Kaur has got NCP ticket from Amravati Lok Sabha constituency in Vidarbha.
“The concerned police station officer is hereby directed to make an investigation and register an FIR as per the law,” said magistrate S H Bhagade.
Activist Jayant Wanjari had moved the metropolitan court on February 15 alleging Kaur submitted false and forged documents to get a certificate declaring her as a Scheduled Caste person.
According to Wanjari?s complaint, Kaur’s father submitted an affidavit in her name to Kurla tehsildar to get the SC certificate, along with her school leaving certificate.
However, Wanjari said, the RTI reply from the education department showed the certificate was fake.
