An FIR has been registered against a woman impersonating as executive member of ruling Samajwadi Party and making recommendations to the district authorities for getting various works done, police said in Lucknow on Saturday.

The FIR was registered by SP city unit president Mujeeb-ur-Rehman Babloo yesterday against one Deepa Bhatt, a resident of Jankipurm area.

According to the complaint, Bhatt was approaching the administrative authorities for favours posing as a member of the SP's national executive.

The woman had also prepared her fake letter head, which claimed that she was a member of the national executive of SP and her official address was that of the SP office in New Delhi.

A case has been lodged under section 419 (cheating by impersonation) and 468 (forgery for cheating) of the Indian Penal Code.

Police said efforts are on to trace the woman.
