Mumbai police
Mumbai: The Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) of Mumbai has registered a case of cheating, forgery and other cases against a Sri Lankan citizen named Mohd Khizar Hussain Tuhan alias Kaizar Khan (50). Based on the complaint of ATS, the Azad Maidan Police have booked the accused Sri Lankan under Sections 420, 465, 467, 468, 471, 12(1) of the IPC. The ATC in its probe suspected the accused having links with terror organisations.

According to sources, the accused could have links with Sri Lankan terror organisation LTTE and Mumbai’s ‘D’ Company. The accused could have forged documents for preparing Indian passport and work for the terror organisations. Investigations revealed that the accused is a Sri Lankan citizen and got married in India. He even acted as hero in ‘Chudail No. 1’ horror movie in 1999. The Senior PI of Azad Maidan Police Station said that the accused has not been arrested so far.

An ATS officer, a few months back, in a statement to Pydhunie police had stated that the accused Kaizar Khan had procured passport in 1999 by forging documents of his address in Taddev area. The ration card and school leaving certificate submitted to Passport Office were all forged. The ATC in its probe had found that the address – E-704, Ranjan Mahal, 7th Floor, Taddev on which basis the accused sought passport was bogus one. No such address was found by the ATS. The ration card of the address was fake one. Similarly, the school leaving certificate of Santacruz-based St Teresa Convent High School was also bogus one.

The ATS probe further revealed that the accused renewed the same passport from Thane Passport Office in 2013 and 2017. Currently, the accused Kaizar Khan is staying in Utthan locality. The ATC in its statement has said that the accused made several visits to Sri Lanka and United States on the basis of this forged passport.

However, what is shocking is that despite registration of such sensitive case the Azad Nagar police have neither arrested him nor took the probe further. The reason could be the accused being high-profile.
