Fake Seal Racket in Rajasthan: Over 500 People Secured Bail through Forged Documents

In a stunning revelation from Chittorgarh, Rajasthan, a well-organized syndicate using counterfeit official seals to facilitate bogus bail has been uncovered. The mastermind, an LLB graduate named Satish Jain, along with his brother Lalit Jain, were arrested after they attempted to use forged documents in court.

The scam came to light when a vigilant judge at the Begu Court raised suspicions about the authenticity of the documents presented during a bail hearing. This led to the discovery that Satish Jain had produced fake seals and signatures of 75 different officials ranging from judges to local revenue officers.

The authorities recovered 75 fake seals from Jain’s car during a routine check, after he and his accomplice, who unsuspectingly used them to conduct their illegal operations, were detained by police. These seals included those of various high-ranking officers such as ADMs, DSPs, tehsildars, and even patwaris, highlighting the extensive nature of their operations.

During police interrogation, Satish Jain confessed to producing counterfeit documents for around 500 individuals, charging between 5,000 to 50,000 INR for each bogus bail transaction. The operation, which began during the COVID-19 pandemic, spanned multiple districts including Udaipur and even extended into Gujarat.

The court documents related to one of the cases indicated that the fraudulent activities were first suspected when a property fraud defendant, Suresh Bansal, was caught using fake documentation to secure bail. The documentation, supposed to verify property ownership worth millions of rupees, was identified by the judge as forged, noting the uniformity in handwriting and seal imprints.

The police have since launched a comprehensive investigation, tracing calls and examining other technological data to uncover the full extent of this racket. The focus is now on identifying other members of the network and uncovering the entire scope of their illegal activities.
