Kozhikode: The Kozhikode Corporation has been rocked again with another fake building number scam. The allegation is that a commercial building earned the building number illegally by using the number of a building situated in ward 28 of the Corporation.
The Revenue Officer and Revenue Clerk, who observed this irregularity has given a complaint to the Corporation Secretary.
It is believed that some middlemen used fake seals to give building number illegally. After receiving complaint from employees, the Corporation Secretary registered a complaint at the Town police station.
Last year a scam had engulfed the Kozhikode Corporation, when passwords of employees were used to provide building numbers illegally. The investigation team could arrest only one person. No follow ups were made by the Crime Branch in that case.
