A man from Indore, Madhya Pradesh, has been convicted of producing a false Covid certificate claiming he tested positive for the disease. When asked why he committed the crime, family members said he wanted to get away from his wife.

Ejaz Ahmed, originally from Mtown district in Madhya Pradesh, is a businessman. He got into a fight with his wife and decided he needed some time away from her.

According to family members, Ejaz uploaded a positive report for Covid from the internet and edited it using Photoshop. He then cited the report to tell his wife and family members that he had tested positive for Covid-19 and that he should stay in a state-run Covid center for a few days.

When he did not return home after a month, Ejaz’s wife became suspicious and asked her father to check the Covid report.

Contacting the private laboratory at Yashwant Plaza near the Gwaltoli police station in Indore, the wife’s father learned that the report was false.

Later, lab owner Vinita Kothari lodged a police complaint at Gwaltoli Police Station in this regard. Police registered a complaint against Ejaz Ahmed under Articles 465 and 469 (Punishment for forgery) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

“We are currently looking for Ejaz,” police said.
