Surat, November 15 

Police have registered a case against two officials of a media company for allegedly forging documents to show higher circulation of two newspapers here in Gujarat to cheat the government and private agencies for advertisement revenue, a police official said on Sunday.

The FIR was registered here on Saturday against P V S Sarma and Sitaram Adukiya, both directors of the firm publishing a Gujarati and an English daily, after a complaint was lodged by an officer of the Income Tax Department, an official from Umra police station said.
