Yogita Khatwani, who drove a car into the premises of Prime Minister's residence about 10 days ago causing a security scare, is in fresh trouble on Wednesday with police filing a case of forgery against her.

Police have accused Khatwani, a former airhostess, of forging ownership documents of the Hyundai Elantra car she drove on July 27 to the Prime Minister's 7, Race Course Road, with her two friends Veena and Imran.

She has been charged under section 420 (cheating), 120B (criminal conspiracy), 471 and 468 (both deal with forgery) for allegedly forging documents to get ownership of the black luxury car changed in her name.

The case was registered at Timarpur police station in north Delhi as the transport authority where she obtained ownership certificate falls under its jurisdiction.

Police had arrested the trio, all in their early 20s, a day after the sensational incident, which came as an embarrassment for security officials, on charges of criminal trespassing and impersonation.

All three had said during interrogation "they drove to the PM's residence just for the sake of fun".

Yogita and Veena, also an airhostess, lost their jobs with Air Sahara after the incident, which happened when Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was chairing a Union Cabinet meeting.

The girl, who hails from Jaipur, had bought the car from one Zahid, police said.
