Fake documents: Govt sacks FSL's Dr Malini

She is accused of submitting false caste records and educational certificates

Bowing to opposition demand in the legislative council, the state government, on Wednesday, sacked Dr S Malini, assistant director of the Forensic Science Laboratory here, on charges of submitting fake documents that furnished wrong information about her caste, and educational qualification for joining the service.

Janata Dal (Seculer) leader MC Nanaiah, who raised the issue in the council, demanded the government to immediately sack Dr Malini from service.

He stated that Malini had not only submitted false caste records, but also fake certificates of educational qualification, including SSLC marks card.

She is also accused of tampering with documents and brain mapping reports in Sister Abhaya murder case of Kerala.

Nanaiah even drew home minister VS Acharya's attention to a December 26, 2008 letter written by former director-general of police R Sri Kumar to the principal secretary, home department, to discharge Dr Malini from service.

But no action was taken as Dr Malini was protected by influential persons in the ruling BJP government, Nanaiah alleged.

In his letter, the former DGP had accused Dr Malini of leaking narco test results conducted on Al Badr extremist Fahad Ali to the media. He also accused her of professional impropriety.

However, a probe by the Corps of Detectives could not establish any impropriety on the part of Dr Malini.

Earlier, questions were also raised on her recruitment through a special drive.
