Hasan Ali to be produced in Pune court tomorrow
A court in Pune has ordered that Hasan Ali Khan, the main accused in a moneylaundering and tax evasion case, be produced on Monday in the case of allegedly furnishing false information while renewing his passport in 2004. His custody was requested in the case of cheating, Chatushrungi police said on Saturday.
In a complaint registered in December 2011 by the Pune passport office, Khan was booked under sections 420 (cheating), 467 (forgery), 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating) of the Indian Penal Code and sections 10 (3) and 12 (1) of Indian Passport Act.
As per the complaint, Khan, now lodged in Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai, had got a passport issued from the Indian High Commission in London in 2004. While getting this passport, the address he furnished was of Banjara Hills in Panjigutta area in Hyderabad, a property owned by his first wife Mehboob Unnisa Begum.
It had come to light that he had divorced her in 1999. "Thus the passport office had registered a case of furnishing wrong information against him," said an officer with the Chatushrungi police station.
Police said that Khan had the passport (number A9884318) since 2000 when he had got it issued from the Hyderabad passport office. Ali went to London on this passport. In London he got a passport issued from the Indian High Commission stating he had lost it. Sometime in early 2004, a fresh passport was issued.
On November 7, 2004, Khan made an application for renewal of the passport at the Pune passport office and got it issued on December 24 the same year. Khan never informed the passport office about other passports he had got issued from Chandigarh, Guwahati and Patna, police said.
Police inspector Subhash Nikam of Chatushrungi police said, "We had sought his custody. The court has ordered that he be produced on Monday."
