New Delhi: Air India has set up a three-member committee to scurtinise documents of qualification of pilots following the arrest of an Air India pilot for obtaining flying licence by allegedly forging marksheets.

Sources in the airlines said that the committee will submit its report soon to the Air India Chief Vigilance Officer.

The committee will include two Air India Executive Directors in-charge of Operations and Industrial Relations.

The DGCA has already said that the licences of 3,000 to 4,000 Air India pilots will be under the scanner, including the 1,700 licenses issued in the last two years.

Police arrested Parminder Kaur Gulati (38) of Indigo and Jitender Kishen Verma (46) of Air India in the last one week and are hot on the trail of two more pilots who are absconding in the wake of the fake pilot scare.
