Mumbai: Malad Police have registered an FIR against two individuals for using their father's fake birth certificate to obtain a passport for international travel. The two were requested to provide the document, which was submitted to the local police station. During the verification conducted by the Special Branch, the document was found to be counterfeit.

According to police sources, Dinky Arvind Singh and Shivam Kanojia had applied for passports. Singh's father's birth certificate was submitted upon authorities' request, but it was discovered to be fake during the verification process.
