Solanki had moved the HC after Kanpur Nagar district judge rejected his bail application on December 21, 2022.
An FIR was registered against him at Gwaltoli police station in Kanpur district for boarding the flight on a forged Aadhaar card and thus compromising airport security.
It is alleged that the Aadhaar card carried his photograph but had his name mentioned as Ashraf Ali. Subsequently, the police had seized computers and printers used in making the fake ID card.
