A man has been arrested for
allegedly providing forged surety documents for an accused
seeking bail, Thane police said Tuesday.
An official said that accused Amit Pandey (22) had
applied for bail in connection with a case registered at Kalwa
"Accused Aasaram Yadav, who has been arrested, and
Santlal Pal, who is at large, forged documents to offer
guarantee for Pandey," he said.
When the court asked Yadav if he knew Pandey, the
former replied in the negative and said Pal had asked him to
submit a fake affidavit claiming that he knew Pandey.
"Yadav said he had offered guarantee for Pandey's bail
as Pal had paid his house rent of Rs 2,000 and had promised
another Rs 1,000," he said.
The official said First Class Judicial Magistrate R T
Ingle then ordered police to take action against the accused.
