AHMEDABAD — The Ahmedabad Crime Branch in Gujarat state has registered a new FIR against conman Kiran Patel who conned the security establishment in Kashmir into believing him to be a PMO official and got the requisite perks prior to his arrest earlier this month.

An official told the Srinagar-based news agency KDC that the Ahmadabad Crime Branch has registered a new FIR against ‘conman’ Kiran Patel who was arrested by a team of Srinagar Police on the inputs of CID Department, for posing as an Additional Director (Strategy and Campaigns) in the Prime Minister’s Office and enjoyed many perks, including a bulletproof car and security cover besides other hospitality.
