The Delhi High Court has permitted a petition filed by the Delhi government, and directed the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) to disclose information of around 450 people, who were allegedly issued fake Aadhaar cards for enrollment of civil defence training in the national capital.

Justice Chandra Dhari Singh passed the order on a petition filed by the Anti-Corruption Branch for the alleged offences of criminal conspiracy under the Indian Penal Code and the Prevention of Corruption Act.

As per the Delhi government plea, one Vijender Gupta had filed a complaint in Anti-Corruption Branch, stating that the process of recruitment of marshals for DTC buses was illegal.

It was further alleged that the recruitment process was manipulated and the District Magistrate had issued fake certificates, certifying as Delhi residents for making Aadhaar cards, to over 400 people from his home state Rajasthan and had compelled them to pay Rs two lakh per head.

It was alleged that a large number of Aadhaar cards with bogus Delhi addresses were made for people from Rajasthan at the Aadhaar centre functioning in the office of the District Magistrate on holidays.

On the basis of the complaint, an FIR was lodged in January, 2020, under the Aadhaar Act.

The prosecutor submitted before the court that the then district magistrate had committed criminal misconduct by abusing official position as public servant with an ulterior motive to give benefit to ineligible people, and in total, around 450 candidates with fake Aadhaar cards, who had enrolled for training in civil defence.
