NOIDA: With the arrest of seven persons, the Noida Police Monday claimed to have busted a gang that made fake documents like Aadhaar cards, driving licenses and college mark sheets.

The fraud came to light on Sunday when Pawan Kumar Verma, who runs a private company, approached the police claiming that one of his employees had got the job in his firm using forged documents, the police said.

A case was registered at the Phase 3 Police Station and probe taken up, an officer said.

"Preliminary inquiry led the investigators to the gang operating from a park in Sector 71," the official said.

"Seven men were arrested. Five forged academic mark sheets, six fake Aadhaar cards, five fake certificates along with electronic equipment were seized from the spot," the officer said.

Jogendra Kumar, Saurabh Kumar, Pradeep Kumar, Srinivas, Manveer, Ravindra Kumar and Sadaqat were arrested and booked under Indian Penal Code sections for fraud and forgery of documents, the officer added.

They have been remanded to judicial custody, he said further.
