"Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) expert had proved that the date of birth was changed from 1956 to 1958 in service book and other documents related to service record", they added.
They further said that the engineer was attached to the office of Divisional Commissioner Jammu, but he managed a stay order from the court against his attachment.
