'While the income documents used to obtain the cards showed they had been issued by the mamlatdar of Vadodara East.

a probe found the mamlatdar office had not issued any of them.

All seven have been booked and more people are likely to be nabbed as part of the scam probe,' he added. PTI KA BNM BNM
