Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - - HTMETRO -

MUM­BAI: A 30-year-old man who was al­legedly try­ing to leave the coun­try after ob­tain­ing a pass­port in his new name, which hadn’t been of­fi­cially changed, was ar­rested in Latur dis­trict of Ma­ha­rash­tra Satur­day.

Nars­ing Jairam Bhuyekar was ar­rested at Ud­gir by the Anti-ter­ror Cell of po­lice, an of­fi­cer said on Sun­day.

He had al­legedly ob­tained the pass­port with the name ‘Mo­hammed Re­han Ibne Adam.’

Bhuyekar had con­verted to Is­lam in 2010 and taken the new name, but as re­quired un­der the law, he did not no­tify the change through a gov­ern­ment gazette.

To get the pass­port, he al­legedly pro­vided doc­u­ments such as PAN card and Aad­har card which bore his new name. As the name on the pass­port ap­pli­ca­tion was not his orig­i­nal name, lo­cal po­lice sub­mit­ted ad­verse in­quiry re­port, but Bhuyekar still man­aged to ob­tain pass­port through an agent, he said.
