Two arrested for issuing fake negative Covid reports

Bengaluru, Jan 8: In a shocking incident, police on Saturday arrested two persons for issuing fake RT-PCR negative certificates for those entering the state from other states. The police have seized 50 fake RT-PCR certificates and mobiles.
Interestingly, the duo issued fake certificates without even collecting throat swabs.
Acting on a tip off, the CCB cracked down on Skyline Diagnostics located in Kaval Byrasandra and seized equipments.
To make quick bucks, the accused took advantage of the Covid guidelines implemented by the government to tackle sudden surge in Covid cases. The duo used to contact inbound and outgoing persons and provided them reports as per their requirements, of course, for a huge sum. They got the money transferred to their accounts and issued certificates.
D.J.Halli police have registed a case and investigation is on.
