Signatures on the papers done my the dummy candidate were scrutinized after which a serious cognizance was given to the matter and on the orders of senior police officials of Maharashtra police, the FIR was registered in the matter last week," said a police officer.

A source said that the dummy candidate who appeared on behalf of Fadtare is too under the scrutiny and the CCTV footage at the time of examination is being examined for further investigation. "We have received a complaint but no arrests have been made. Further investigation of the matter is underway.
