Pilots licence scam: Lookout notice against four
New Delhi: Delhi Police`s Crime Branch
has issued a lookout notice against three pilots and a flying
instructor for allegedly being involved in forging mark sheets
to procure licences.
Notices have been issued against pilots Swaran Singh
Talwar of MDLR, Syed Habib Ali and Bhupinder Singh, who have
licences but have not joined any airline. A lookout notice has
also been issued against a flying instructor D Asatkar.
The pilots had allegedly procured Airlines Transport
Pilot Licence (ATPL) using fake documents. "One has to clear
three subjects, Aviation Meteorology, Radio Aids and
Instruments and Air Navigation, to get ATPL, mandatory for
becoming a Commander of a plane. However, these pilots failed
in one or the other papers," a senior police official said.
A senior official of airline regulator DGCA and three
others, including a pilot, were arrested on Saturday with
Delhi Police claiming that it has smashed a racket involved in
forging mark sheets to help pilots procure licences.
The Crime Branch has so far arrested six persons,
including three pilots, in connection with the case of pilots
procuring licences using forged mark sheets.
