A mobile court on Tuesday night sentenced a man to three months in jail for posing as an official of the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) and possessing fake documents of different government offices.
The convicted person was identified as Illam Shahriar, 37, who lived in a rented house at Shimultoli Moubagh area of Gazipur city.
Rab said Shahriar used to introduce himself as a senior government official. Sometimes he claimed to be a deputy director of PMO, and used other identities as well.
By using these fake identities, he embezzled money from different persons promising to arrange job, transfer of government employees and more, said Lt Commander Abdullah Al-Mamun of Rab-1.
On the basis of these allegations, Rab arrested him from his home in Gazipur on Tuesday afternoon. Law enforcers also seized fake ID cards, seal-pads, stickers and fake documents of different government organisations, said the Rab official.
After the arrest, Jannatul Ferdous, executive magistrate of the district administration, sentenced him to three months in jail.
