BATHINDA: County police have arrested three people, including a private bank officer, for allegedly preparing forged documents for army personnel to secure a loan.

Police Deputy Superintendent (DSP) Aaswant Dhaliwal said on Friday that defendants Surinder Pal Singh, Jaivir Singh and Kingpin Gurpreet Singh had stamps up to the rank of lieutenant colonel, fake IDs and certificates from army authorities seized.

Surinder was linked to the credit department of a leading Bathinda branch.

One case was registered at Civil Lines Police Station under Sections 465 (Falsification), 471 (Fraudulent Use of Any Document as Genuine) and 420 (Fraud) of the Indian Penal Code.

Police received information about the gang’s suspicious activities from military intelligence.

As for the modus operandi of the crime, the DSP said the defendants prepared forged documents to process loan papers from defense personnel stationed at the Bathinda military station.

They used to take large commissions for preparing service certificates from various army units in order to secure personal loans from a particular bank, he said.

The DSP added that the gang has been active for the past two years and has been suspected of fabricating forged documents from over 50 army personnel.

“Forensic examination of a Jaivir laptop resulted in data from fake IDs and certificates. Our team also found checks, savings books and other documents. The guilt of army personnel and others will be investigated,” added Dhaliwal.
