The Central Reserved Police Force said the admit card of the candidate, who was supposed to appear before a board for physical examination for recruitment as a head constable, was "auto generated" recently and subsequently posted on its official website for download by the aspirant.

"The candidate has filled up application form/Roll No. 2430026090 with fake details like name - Narendra Modi,
father's name- Rarendra Modi, mother's name- Raj, attaching photograph of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and indicating Group Centre CRPF Rampur as centre for examination.

"His case was detected before the physical standard test and was cancelled on July 15, 2016. The fake candidate did not appear for the physical standard test, though he downloaded the admit card before it was cancelled," CRPF said in a statement in New Delhi.

The generation of admit cards for recruitment in CRPF is done through online (Internet-based) mode. The admit card can be downloaded from website only by the applicant with personal details like application number, name and date of birth, among others, it said.

"The fake and mischievous person who filled the application form with false data and picture of the Prime
Minister has downloaded the auto-generated admit card," it said.
