Bhopal, May 18 (Calcutta Tube) Six people have been arrested on charges of preparing fake bail bonds to help inmates get out of jail in Madhya Pradesh’s Ratlam district, police said Tuesday.
A total of 22 land ownership books which were forged and used for securing bail for inmates have been recovered from them, said Ratlam police official S.S. Chauhan.
Those arrested have been identified as Babu Singh, Veer Singh, Shyam Singh, Ramesh Bhil, Manish Purohit and Nathu Singh.
According to police, the gang dealing in getting jail inmates bailed out on basis of fake bonds was active in the court premises.
For a price, the gang used to produce forged guarantees and submit fake bonds for criminals to secure bail, a police officer said.
The officer said the gang helped secure bail for several people who then never turned up on the dates fixed for hearing.
Ratlam is 300 km from Bhopal.
