The state anti-terrorist squad of Thane unit on Tuesday arrested a 32-year-old man and seized around 2,000 fake documents such as PAN and Aadhaar cards. The accused is Ansarali Amir Ali Ansari, a resident of Bhiwandi. “We arrested Ansari on Tuesday. He has been remanded in police custody till October 31,” said Sushil Jawle, senior police inspector, Thane ATS.
The accused was caught after 20 people, suspected to be Bangladeshis, were recently arrested from Narpoli in Bhiwandi for allegedly staying in the country illegally.
“We arrested them after a tip-off. After investigation, we traced Ansari, who used to prepare the fake documents for them. More than three people had got their fake passports,” added Jawle. “We have sent the seized documents to senior officers to check the status of the people living in and around Thane and Bhiwandi,” said Vikas Ghodke, police inspector of Thane ATS.
