The FIR was lodged at Hazratganj police station against Mukhtar Ansari and his sons under sections 467 (forgery of valuable security, will, etc.), 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating), 471 (using as genuine a forged document or electronic record) and 120 B (criminal conspiracy) of the IPC and Prevention from Damage to Public Property Act.
