He used to work as a peon but was a master when it came to forging documents. And with his ‘forgery skills’, he helped two persons get the pilots’ licenses and also managed a job of a flight supervisor for himself. On Monday, the ‘flight’ of this forger Eknath Patil was cut short when he was arrested by Delhi Crime Branch along with two pilots.
DCP (Crime) Ashok Chand said that the role of this master forger came to light after the arrest of a pilot Abhishek Kaushik.
“The Crime Branch had received a complaint against Abhishek from training and licensing department of Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) following which he was arrested. During interrogation, Abhishek confessed that he had furnished fake certificates to DGCA to obtain a Commercial Pilot’s License (CPL). He also revealed that he and his friend Hiren Nagar had obtained the forged marksheets from Eknath Patil. Following this, the Crime Branch arrested both of them,” said Chand.
The police also found that initially Eknath used to work as a peon at flying club, Indore Udyan Institute in MP.
He then moved to Gujarat and ‘managed’ a job of flight supervisor for himself at Ahmedabad Aviation and Aeronautics on the basis of forged papers.
The Crime Branch is interrogating him to know whether he had provided fake certificates to other pilots too.
