The defendants have been charged under sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for cheating, forgery, fraudulently utilising real papers, and common intention.

The official said, “The foreigners were interviewed and accordingly given the card. Document verification later revealed that it is fake. The addresses on AADHAAR were of Goa and Sindhudurg. Basis the rent agreement address, an AADHAAR was made. When our team went to both addresses, no one lived there. We got information about a lady who was involved with a foreign national. We nabbed both the women but a local Goa court granted them transit bail and asked them to be present in a Mumbai court whenever called.”

The two foreigners desired an OCI card because they frequently visited India. They decided to marry natives. AADHAAR and a marriage certificate from the BMC are required in order to obtain the card. These falsified and forged documents were submitted to the OCI office, which later discovered that false papers had been created.
