Two days after the arrest of Border Security Force (BSF) constable Anil Kumar by the crime investigating agency (CIA) in connection with crossborder smuggling, the SAS Nagar police on Sunday recovered a hard disk, computer, scanner and printer of Deepak Kumar, who had helped main accused Gurjant procure passport, driving licenses, adhaar card and other identity proofs on fake identity.

The police recovered two passports in the name of Gurjant, while two driving licenses and other documents each in the name of Gurjant, Sandeep and Jatinder.

A senior police official said the computer and other gadgets were recovered from Ludhiana and were used to make fake documents. We will send the hard disk to a forensic lab to recover the data. Also a head constable posted at Goraya is under scanner as he verified the documents for preparing Gurjant’s passport.

“We also scanning the call details of BSF constable Anil Kumar,” he added.
