A man has been arrested for allegedly providing forged surety documents for an accused seeking bail, Thane police said Tuesday.
"Accused Aasaram Yadav, who has been arrested, and Santlal Pal, who is at large, forged documents to offer guarantee for Pandey," he said.
When the court asked Yadav if he knew Pandey, the former replied in the negative and said Pal had asked him to submit a fake affidavit claiming that he knew Pandey.
"Yadav said he had offered guarantee for Pandey's bail as Pal had paid his house rent of Rs 2,000 and had promised another Rs 1,000," he said.
