Three persons, including a Delhi Police ASI, were arrested on Thursday for allegedly preparing and providing fake marksheets and degrees of reputed educational institutions.
Assistant Sub-Inspector Suresh Yadav, 49, Ajit Saini, 50, and Ashok Kumar, 48, were arrested by the crime branch after it received information about the trio being involved in preparing and supplying fake educational documents and certificates.
The crime branch then laid a trap to arrest them. Their informer struck a deal for preparing fake marksheets and a DU degree of B.Com.
When Saini came at Model Town Metro Station to deliver the fake marksheets and degree, he was apprehended, police said.
"During interrogation, Saini disclosed that he had procured these documents from one Suresh Yadav, who was working as ASI in Delhi Police. On Saini's instance, Yadav was arrested and he admitted that he had got the fake documents prepared from one Ashok Kumar," said Additional Commissioner of Police (Crime Branch) Ravindra Yadav.
Subsequently, Kumar too was arrested and a computer, used to prepare fake documents, was seized from his house, police said.
“During investigation, it came to light that most of their clients asked for fake documents to show good educational profiles for either their children's marriage or to apply in private companies to get suitable jobs,” said Yadav.
