Fake pilots: Ex-BJP minister's son among 4 booked

May 27, 2011 11:56 IST

The Rajasthan anti-corruption bureau has registered a case against the son of former Bharatiya Janata Party minister Madan Dilawar and three others for procuring commercial pilot licenses by allegedly furnishing fake documents.

The cases were registered against Pawan Dilawar, Ankur Garg, Sidharth Lochab and Rohan Saxena this week, police said on Friday.

Madan Dilawar was the minister of social justice in the previous BJP government. The four allegedly faked flying hours in connivance with former chief flying instructor of Rajasthan Flying School Mohinder Kumar, chief flying instructor of Haryana Institute of Civil Aviation Mahaveer Singh and assistant GM, ATC, Sanganer airport, Manoj Jain, they said.

While Pawan, Ankur and Siddarth got their commercial pilot licenses by showing fake hours of cross country flying, Rohan, who trained in Canada and procured CPL from there, got it converted for flying in India by allegedly showing two fake certificates related with a flying test by the Rajasthan Flying School.

The officials named in the FIRs have been booked in 13 similar cases and arrested several months ago. The ACB has so far lodged 17 cases against officials and pilots in connection with the fake pilot scam.
