New Delhi: Yet another Pilot has been arrested by the Delhi Police Crime Branch on the charges of forging certificates to secure a Commercial Pilot License (CPL). The alleged person has been identified as Madhya Pradesh resident Gaurav Jain (21).  Jain is the 13th person to be arrested for producing fake documents to secure a CPL.

Jain submitted forged documents with Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) office. He met a Pilot Manoj Dhaka, who assured him a license for the payment of Rs 30,000 to which Jain agreed. The police is conducting raids to trace the person who provided the fake license and five Pilots involved in the racket.

Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime Branch), Ravi Shankar Sharma, said “Jain has been arrested on the basis of a complaint received from DC Sharma, Director, Training and Licensing, Civil Aviation Department.”

Following which, Jain had taken anticipatory bail for two months from the Madhya Pradesh High Court. He then applied for anticipatory bail before the Saket Session Court in New Delhi, which was dismissed on August 6.

During the interrogation, Jain disclosed that after passing class XII, he went to Canada in 2008 and joined flying school for training. After completing his flying course he got Canadian Commercial Pilot License (CPL) in November 2009.

After returning to India, he appeared in the Pilot License Examinations conducted by the Director General of Civil Aviations (DGCA) for conversion of his Canadian CPL to Indian CPL, but he failed in one of the two papers.

Jain then through a friend met Dhaka another CPL holder and paid Rs 30,000 for fake marksheet and documents. The forged documents were submitted to the DGCA in April 2010, based on which Jain was issued a CPL in June.

Dhaka is also an accused in a similar case where he had taken Rs 50,000 from one Rohit Kapoor who has already been arrested. Dhaka had helped Kapoor to get his CPL. Police is trying to catch hold of absconding Dhaka at the earliest, claimed the Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police.
