Police recover 2 rubber stamps from accused



Old Goa police probing the alleged fake Aadhaar card case have recovered two rubber stamps that were allegedly used to prepare fake bonafide school certificates.

Old Goa police inspector Jivba Dalvi informed that one rubber stamp has the name of a school in Karnataka and another of the school headmaster. “We are in process of verifying with the school in Karnataka regarding the bonafide school certificates as well as the rubber stamps which have been recovered from the accused”, informed Dalvi.

He also informed that with regard to the 3 alleged fake Aadhaar cards the police are in process to trace the three persons. It may be recalled that earlier this week the police had arrested Amit Jaiswal residing at Merces in connection with the alleged fake Aadhaar cards case.

Police had recovered 3 Aadhaar cards which were in the name of the accused but with different addresses and also another 3 Aadhaar cards belonging to some other persons. These Aadhaar cards appear to be fake, police had said. Police had also found alleged fake bonafide school certificates from the residence of the accused and the CPU of the computer which the police say was reportedly used to prepare fake certificates was attached.

Referring to how the alleged fake Aadhaar card case came to light, the police said that one Inayath Khan from Corlim- Tiswadi had filed a complaint claiming that last month he was induced by the accused person to pay Rs 15,000 to make an Aadhaar card; however the accused person failed to provide the same. Based on the complaint, the Old Goa police registered an FIR under section 420 IPC. According to the police they are investigating whether these Aadhaar cards have been used or submitted in any government or private institutions or company and for what purpose the bonafide certificates were used. Police have also written to the concerned agencies regarding the alleged fake Aadhaar cards.
