Two pilots working with private airlines were arrested in New Delhi for allegedly procuring commercial flying licences using forged marksheets, taking the total number of people arrested in such cases to 17.

The arrested pilots have been identified as Captain Param Prakash and Captain Anirban Sannigrahi, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime) Ashok Chand said.

"Both obtained commercial pilot licences using forged marksheets," he said.

With this, police have arrested a total of nine pilots for procuring commercial pilot licence or Air Transport Pilot Licence by allegedly submitting fake marksheets.

A total of 17 people, including three Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) officials, have been arrested in Delhi and Jaipur since March 7 after the fake pilot scam was unearthed by the DGCA.
