A Anilkumar-Kalamassery Medical College
Kochi: Police on Friday arrested Anilkumar, the key accused in a case registered for forging fake documents for adoption in Kalamassery Medical College, from Madurai. He has been absconding since police booked him over the allegations that he aided a couple in illegally adopting a child.
Anilkumar, an administrative assistant at Medical College, allegedly used his influence to forge a fake birth certificate from Kalamassery Municipality. Using these documents, Anilkumar allegedly aided a Thrippunithura couple in illegally adopting a child from biological parents.
As per the forged document, the child was born on January 31, 2023. The fake certificate with the fake parents' address and other information. was issued on February 1.
The incident came to light after AN Rehana, the kiosk executive at the Birth & Death Registration department in Kalamassery Municipality, found several inconsistencies in the birth report.
Meanwhile, Anilkumar was arrested by a team led by Baby, the assistant commissioner of Thrikkakara station. He will be brought to Kochi for questioning and will likely be produced before the magistrate today.
The police will investigate whether Anilkumar has links to the child's biological parents or had mediated in delivering the child to a Thrippunithura native. Further, officials will examine whether any financial dealings happened in the illegal adoption.
