According to reports, this officer pretended to be Amit Shah in a phone call to the state Governor Lalji Tandon.

The Indian Air Force (IAF) Wing Commander, Kuldeep Baghela, currently posted in New Delhi has been arrested along with his friend, Chandresh Kumar Shukla. Chandresh is a dentist from Bhopal who posed as Amit Shah's assistant during the phone call. He was also the one being recommended for the vice-chancellor seat at the Madhya Pradesh Medical Science University in Jabalpur. 

Both of them hatched a conspiracy and called the state governor. While Shukla posed as Amit Shah's PA, Baghela impersonated as the Union home minister and talked to the governor.

However, soon after the phone call, the officials at the governor's house got suspicious and realised it may be a fraud when they cross-examined it.
