HC orders SP to probe Sundergarh MLA’s fake caste certificate

Cuttack: The Orissa High Court has directed the Sundergarh SP to probe the allegations of producing fake caste certificate against MLA Jogesh Singh. The High Court has sought a probe report on the same within 6 weeks from the SP.

Notably, defeated MLA candidate from Sundergarh Kusum Tete filed a petition in the High Court alleging that though Jogesh hails from Khandayat Bhuyan caste, he deliberately filed wrong information in the caste certificate and contested the election.
Tete approached the court after no action was taken by the police in this regard.
