Police have recovered a laptop, a desktop with a printer and scanner, 20 rubber stamps belonging to the RTO, Gurgaon, forged national permits with nationalised bank challan and holograms used on national permit from him. During the interrogation, Khurana told the police that he has so far prepared over 100 national permits fraudulently.
