The arrests came following investigations into information that Subhash allegedly involved in preparing of forged certificate of the UP Board of High School and Intermediate Education.
Additional Commissioner of Police (South-East) Virender Chahal said, “We managed to contact Subhash, who was asked by a decoy customer to provide a certificate, marksheet, transfer certificate and character certificate of the Intermediate Examination, 2006.
Subhash allegedly agreed to provide the same on July 30 and the deal was struck for R5,000. An advance of R400 was given to Subhash.
Subhash was arrested near Sarai Kale Khan Terminal on July 30 when he came to receive the remaining amount and hand over the fake certificates. His interrogation led to Sisodia.
Their interrogation revealed that Sisodia had contacts with one Bharat Singh, who managed to provide blank documents which they filled according to the requirement.
“Sisodia has been providing forged documents for more five years. He charges R5,000 for each certificate. They provide documents of UP and CBSE Board. Subhash works as agent for Sisodia,” added Chahal.
A large number of forged certificates and mark sheets of Board of High School and Intermediate Education, UP, prepared in different names were allegedly recovered from the house of Sisodia.
