Delhi High Court’s instructions to UIDAI, give information about people with fake Aadhar cards

The Delhi High Court has directed the UIDAI to furnish information on over 400 persons who were reportedly granted fraudulent Aadhaar cards in order to enrol with the national capital’s civil defence.

The Delhi government’s request for an order to the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) to probe the information sought by the investigating agency on Aadhaar card users was granted by Justice Chandradhari Singh.

The Anti-Corruption Branch has registered a criminal conspiracy case under the Indian Penal Code and the Anti-Corruption Act. Hearing the matter, the court said, “The court accepts the petition. The accused is directed to provide all relevant information under the provisions of the Aadhaar Act in respect of the persons named in the petition.”  According to the petition, complainant Vijender Gupta complained to the Anti-Corruption Wing of the Delhi government that the manner in which marshals have been recruited in DTC Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) buses is illegal.

The recruiting procedure was said to have been interfered with. Over 400 people from his native state of Rajasthan received bogus certificates from the district magistrate, who validated them as residents of Delhi and handed them Aadhaar cards. Extortion of Rs 2 lakh per individual was also carried out. Based on the allegations, a FIR was filed in January 2020.
