In the state of Uttar Pradesh special task force has caught a gang making thousand of fake Adhar card using duplicate biometric identities. There was a gang of 10 peoples who were working these illegal activities. The leader of the gang worked for a private enrollment agency.
UIDAI has collaborated thousands of private institutions to collect data and make Adhar cards for public and Kanpur resident Saurabh Singh is one of these institutions owner who was working privately for UIDAI. And now they have been caught with other nine peoples.
In U.P. it is found that these kind of similar gangs are working to make fake Adhar Cards using duplicate biometric data.
STF IG Amitabh Yash has said that they canceled recently 80 lakhs and blacklisted many vendors on the information of faking Adhar card.
“We have yet to gauge the exact number but we need to understand that the gang had a presence in Kanpur, Lucknow, Mainpuri, Fatehpur, Hardoi, Azamgarh, Deoria and Kushinagar,” added Yash.
Adhar is facing serious issues also in courts while some blamed that it can be harmful and violation of the right to privacy of common people to give their private information to the government. They also raise concern about using this information by wrong people to creates troubles for people and now with these gang busting in U.P. has proven their concern.
