Patna: The regional passport office in
Patna has filed an FIR at Kotwali police station in Patna against
Hasan Ali Khan for submitting fake information about his
residential address while applying for a passport in December
2010, a top police official said on Thursday.

Hasan Ali Khan, Pune`s stud farm owner, has been
arrested for money laundering and tax evasion.

"A regional passport officer at Patna had lodged an
FIR on December 19 last against Khan under sections 420, 467,
468, 471 and the Indian Passport Act for submission of fake
residential proof while applying for passport," Senior
Superintendent of Police (SSP) Alok Kumar told reporters.

Khan, 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, he said.

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
applied for passport from Guwahati and Chandigarh.
