Panaji: Goa Police has moved to the local court to close the crucial case against Anthony D’Souza, who was alleged to have issued ‘samaj certificates’ from a defunct organization.

Social Activist Inacio Domnic Pereira had filed a formal complaint against D’Souza as the certificate issued by him under defunct organization – Association of Christian Backward Classes – which were used to procure “caste certificate” from  Deputy Collector’s office across the State.

The First Information Report against D’Souza was filed on August 02, 2018 by Panaji police under section 420 of Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Police Sub Inspector Aditya Velip has moved to close the case against D’Souza.

The complainant had said that as per information received from Registrar of Societies Junta House, it has been revealed that said Mr Anthony D’Souza, who claims to be President of Association of Christian Backward Classes is not even a member of the said association and also the same association of Christian Backward Classes stands deregistered.”

It is suspected that Anthony D’Souza fraudulently issued certificate by impersonating a non-existence association, which is an act of forgery.

The PSI in his closure order has said that ‘Samaj Certificate’ was not necessary for issuing of ‘Caste Certificate’.

“As observed in the judgment delivered in the case of Kum. Madhuri Patil and others versus Additional Commissioner, Tribal development and another, Samaj Certificate is not mandatory document to rely upon by the Scrutiny Committee for the purpose of verification of the caste certificate,” the PSI has said in his closure report.

Reacting to the development, complainant Inacio Domnick Pereira said that the findings of the PSI are unfound as Deputy Collector has been insisting for ‘Samaj certificates’, which is one of the compulsory document to issue ‘Caste Certificate’.

He said that he would be challenging the closure order of the police before competent authorities.
