A man allegedly forged the signature of Andhra Tourism Minister Bhuma Akhila Priya and then brought the letter to her claiming that her officials were refusing to honour the recommendation letter.
The man identified as Ali from Pedakurapadu in Guntur District is now in the custody of the Amaravathi Police.
According to police, the man arrived at the Tourism Ministry office with a letter of recommendation signed by Akhila Priya asking the office to give employment to Ali within a week. The officials were confused and hence approached the minister along with the letter.
Initially, the minister was confused but later she realised that the signature and the seal on it was forged. The police registered a case and are investigating the matter.
