A 26-year-old man from Madhya Pradesh's Mhow has been booked for forgery after he created a fake RTPCR Covid-19 positive report in order to stay away from his wife. He allegedly did not know that the act would land him in trouble.

The man got married to his wife in February last year and he forged the report in order to spend time away from her over personal issues. He then downloaded a Covid positive report of another person from a website and used photoshop to replace the name and picture with his own. His family got suspicious of the report as he had disappeared from the house even though he did not have any symptoms. "He sent the forged report through Whatsapp to his father and wife and then disappeared from his home," a police official reportedly said.

The cop added, "However, family members got suspicious as he had not shown any symptoms of the infection. When they contacted the private laboratory, the accused's fraudulent act was revealed." The laboratory had then filed a complaint with the police, who booked him under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.
