According to the complaint, Raj Kumar Singh was appointed as an Assistant Bookkeeper in the Waterworks Department on the basis of a forged appointment order dated February 17, 1988. The order, numbered 2355/3, was allegedly fabricated, and Singh’s appointment was secured using fake mark sheets and documents.

Chauhan has asserted that despite multiple attempts to obtain legitimate documentation proving the legality of Raj Kumar Singh’s appointment, he was met with resistance and obfuscation from the accused officials. The complainant further highlighted that the fraudulent appointment has led to significant financial losses for the government and has called for a thorough investigation into the matter.

Chauhan also filed a complaint on the UP government portal, which acknowledged the corrupt practices within the LMC and registered it under complaint number 400015722074001. This led to the formal registration of the FIR and the initiation of legal proceedings.
