Jaipur/New Delhi: In connection with fake flying licenses scam on Tuesday, two SpiceJet pilots were sacked, as nine more pilots suspected to have obtained licences on the basis of forged marksheets were under the scanner.

According to reports, eight pilots of different airlines were under the close watch of Rajasthan's Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB), a day after it arrested the two SpiceJet pilots--Captain Anuj Kumar and First Officer Amit Mundra-- while one pilot is under the scanner of Delhi Police.

In its release, SpiceJet said the airline had terminated the services of Kumar and Mundra with immediate effect. They were produced before a Jaipur court which sent them to judicial custody.

Both pilots, Kumar and Mundra, have been accused of misrepresenting their flying hours in order to obtain their license from the civil aviation regulator DGCA, the release said.

Both the pilots said they have done no wrong and that they passed out from a government-run flying school.

"We have been charged because the flying school did not deposit the money we gave them as fees," Kumar said.

Four pilots including Kumar and Mundra of SpiceJet have so far been arrested while a woman pilot has "joined investigations". Parwinder Kaur Gulati of Indigo and JK Verma of Air India were arrested in New Delhi.

In New Delhi, a senior police official said aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has reported one more case to Delhi Police's Crime Branch.

However, the official did not provide the identity of the pilot saying it would hamper the investigations.
