A man was caught on Sunday for taking money from residents and distributing fake Coronavirus Relief Fund forms in return in Pakpattan.

According to the police, the suspect, identified as Raheel Babar, was recently fired from his job as a police constable. He confessed to his crime in police custody.

“Babar had brought a fake police uniform from Sahiwal after which he came here and fooled residents into filling these fake forms,” the police deputy superintendent said.


Babar charged Rs300 for each form. The police detained identity cards from him as well.

A case has been filed against him. The DSP added that strict action will be taken against him.
