The regional passport office in Patna has filed an FIR at Kotwali police station against Hasan Ali Khan for submitting fake information about his residential address while applying for a passport in December 2010, a top police official has said.
Hasan Ali Khan, a Pune-based stud farm owner, has been arrested by the Enforcement Directorate for money laundering and tax evasion.
"We have registered an FIR against Hasan Ali for changing his birth place address several times in his passport. He has provided incorrect particulars for getting the passport made. He had also not given the same details of the earlier passports he had," said Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Alok Kumar.
Khan, in his passport application, had given Pathantoli locality under Alamganj police station in Patna as his local address and Belsand village in Bihar's Sitamarhi district as the permanent address.
"The passport officials had apparently got suspicious about these documents during verification and then decided to lodge an FIR with the police," Kumar said.
Hasan had obtained passports from Hyderabad, Pune, Mumbai and reportedly one from London, he said, adding he had also applied for passport from Guwahati and Chandigarh. (With PTI Inputs)
