Patna Court Charges IPS Officer Aditya Kumar in Fake Call Case, Grants Bail

In a significant development in the fake advocacy call case, IPS officer Aditya Kumar from Bihar finds himself in increasing trouble as charges have been formally set against him by a special court. Kumar was presented before the court from Beur Jail in Patna on Thursday.

During the court session, the charges against him were read aloud, though Kumar denied all allegations. Subsequently, the special court instructed the Special Public Prosecutor to present prosecution witnesses and evidence in the case.

Following these proceedings, the Special Judicial Magistrate issued an order for Kumar’s release from Beur Jail upon the submission of a bail bond, adhering to the regular bail granted by the Patna High Court.

The case originates from an incident in 2022, when the Economic Offences Unit (EOU) of Patna lodged a criminal case against Kumar for allegedly making fake calls impersonating the Chief Justice of Patna High Court to advocate in a case. After thorough investigation, the EOU filed a chargesheet against Kumar along with Abhishek Jaiswal alias Bhopali and five others, substantiating the accusations against them.

Aditya Kumar, a 2011 batch IPS officer and a native of Meerut district in Uttar Pradesh, had been evading arrest for about seven months in connection with the case before he surrendered to the Patna court in December last year.
