Bogus document scam unearthed, two arrested

The detection of crime branch (DCB) unearthed a major scam related to bogus stamp papers, rubber stamps of banks and government,
vehicle registration books and company's letter pads on Thursday. Two persons were arrested in the scam that was being run on a major scale by the residents of city's Mehta Pole.

According to DCB officials, more arrests are likely in the scam that was unearthed after one of the key persons was nabbed on Wednesday. "We had received a tip-off that a person having bogus documents of regional transport office (RTO) will pass from Raopura area on Wednesday. We kept a watch in the area and nabbed the person identified as Bhavin Patel," said Karim Polra, DCB police inspector.

"Patel revealed the names of key conspirators Anil Panat and Shailaja Pail, who used to prepare fake stamp papers, property papers, RC books and rubber stamps with the help of computers and some equipments," Polra added. While Panat has been arrested, Shailaja is absconding.

Police recovered 32 stamp papers worth about Rs 1.94 lakh, 24 rubber stamps of sub-registrar office, 25 RTO rubber stamps, seven notary rubber stamps, 22 stamps of nationalised banks, M S University's blank pay-slips and VMC rubber stamps. The accused used to provide these bogus documents to people for a price. They used to even generate bogus bills and receipts that many may have used in government dealings.

Interestingly, Anil was arrested in a similar case about one and half years back by the Gorwa police. However, he was released on bail as he was accused of small-time scam, said police.
