Explain why no fir filed against kumble for forging signatur

BANGALORE: The Karnataka High Court on Friday directed the Bharathinagar Police Inspector to be present in court on February 28 to explain as to why an FIR has not been registered against ace cricketer Anil Kumble for allegedly forging the signature of the father of his stepdaughter to obtain passport for her.

Justice Abdul Nazeer gave the direction while hearing a writ petition filed last month by Kumar Jagirdar, the former husband of Kumble's wife, seeking a direction to police to file an FIR against Kumble for allegedly forging his signature to obtain passport for Aaruni, the former Indian captain's stepdaughter.

In his petition, Jagirdar, who has been engaged in a legal battle with his former wife Chetana, said the police have not registered an FIR on his complaint filed on December 26 last year. Jagirdar contended Kumble had "impersonated" him though his name has been mentioned as "father" in the passport and signed the documents, thereby "misleading" the passport authorities.

Aaruni, born to Chetana and Jagirdar, lives with her mother and Kumble. Jagirdar in his complaint stated that despite a Supreme Court judgement, which gave joint guardianship of his daughter in the year 2004, Kumble and Chetana went ahead to apply for a passport for Aaruni with a "forged" signature.

It really a bad case on the kumble. But the offence and punishable is made for all people so kumble should not be out of it.

The police inspector with whom the complaint was lodged  was also be prosicuted for abating such a henous crime along with main accused.Its really a shameful and criminal act by the police inspector and hence be made equally liable for violating indian passport laws and Prosicuting such a currupt police officers might become detterant to all other officials.
