Police have registered a case against five persons from Thane district in Maharashtra for allegedly submitting forged documents with revenue authorities for the purpose of land records mutation, an official said on Monday.

The accused, from Badlapur area in Thane, submitted certain documents, with forged signatures and stamps, to the Badlapur talati (revenue officer) and circle office on February 8 for the mutation of records of land procured by them.

A probe was on into the case.
