Patna, Mar 10: The regional passport office in Patna has filed an FIR at Kotwali police station here against Hasan Ali Khan for submitting fake information about his residential address while applying for a passport in December 2010, a top police official said tonight.
Hasan Ali Khan, Pune's stud farm owner, has been arrested for money laundering and tax evasion.
"A regional passport officer at Patna had lodged an FIR on December 19 last against Khan under sections 420, 467, 468, 471 and the Indian Passport Act for submission of fake residential proof while applying for passport," Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Alok Kumar told reporters.
Khan, his passport application, had given Pathantoli locality under Alamganj police station in Patna as his local address and Belsand village in Bihar's Sitamarhi district as the permanent address, he said.
The passport officials had apparently got suspicious about these documents during verification and then decided to lodge an FIR with the police, Kumar said.
Hasan had obtained passports from Hyderabad, Pune, Mumbai and reportedly one from London, he said, adding he had applied for passport from Guwahati and Chandigarh. PTI
