‘Fake’ woman pilot arrested
New Delhi: A woman pilot has been arrested in
the capital for allegedly using a forged marksheet of a DGCA
test to procure a commercial pilot licence, police said on Wednesday.
Parminder Kaur Gulati, a suspended pilot of Indigo, was
apprehended by a team of Delhi Police's crime branch yesterday
following investigations into a complaint filed by the
Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).
Gulati allegedly produced the forged marksheets of DGCA
Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) test to get the
commercial pilot licence.
With ATPL, one can become a co-pilot and to get a full
fledged commercial pilot licence one should have ATPL with
adequate flying hours.
Sources said Gulati had allegedly produced forged
marksheets of ATPL examination conducted by the DGCA. She
holds a valid commercial pilot licence.
Last year, during a flight landing in Goa by Gulati,
technical errors were noticed and DGCA had constituted an
enquiry to look into it.
Sources said, during investigations it came to light that
Gulati had allegedly forged marksheets of the ATPL
examination, following which she was suspended by the
