Delhi University or Lucknow University. Kanpur University or any college. Certificate of any game of national or state level or any other document. Just, give the price of 10 to 20 thousand rupees and you have such certificate in a few hours. This kind of forgery was going on in Lucknow for three years and nobody even got a clue. Some time ago, the STF got a fake certificate from this gang and started investigating and arrested three gangsters of this gang on Thursday. More than two and a half thousand certificates, mark sheets and other documents of several universities have been recovered with these fraudsters. There are also several blank documents in these. The STF claims that these people have given fake documents to more than 800 people. Such documents are mostly employed in private jobs. STF has taken many more people on the radar in this case.
According to the STF deputy SP, the forgeries were Bada Barha, Sunil Kumar Sharma, resident of Alambagh, Lallan Kumar Singh, resident of Virat Nagar and Vishwajit Shrivastava, resident of Purana Qila. They have got fake documents from Allahabad University, Kanpur University, Polytechnic.
Used to charge 10 to 20 thousand rupees for fake documents
Accused Sunil told STF that they used to give fake documents of college for Rs 10,000. The person taking the certificate used to provide the documents of whatever college or university was needed. He used to charge more in the name of giving certificates for Delhi and other big universities. Deputy SP Avaneshwar said that these people had even prepared fake documents issued by the Olympic Association. These people mostly used to trap people from rural areas in their clutches.
Used to prepare documents like this
The fraudsters said that they used to get the documents printed as per the requirement. Then, when their demand came, they used to scan the name and other details on it, which made them look like a real certificate and no one was suspicious. For this, these people kept modern printers and computers at their homes.
More used for jobs in private companies
STF officials said that these fake documents were mostly made by people working in private companies. The reason for this is that educational documents are not checked in these companies. The STF has also not denied that many people have used them in government jobs as well. Investigation is being done in this regard.
