The court of judicial magistrate first class here on Thursday rejected the bail plea of Pune stud farm owner Hasan Ali in a fake passport case.

The Patna police filed a charge sheet on April 1.

Ali is booked under Sections 420 (cheating), 467 (forgery of valuable security), 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating), 471 (using as genuine a forged document), 120B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code and 10 (3) and 12 (1) of the Passport Act.

He allegedly obtained a passport in 1997 on the basis of forged documents, including a fake ration card, Class 10 certificate, domicile certificate of Belsand in Sitamarhi district in Bihar and a letter from the Ministry of External Affairs.

The Pune-based Ali is currently in judicial custody and lodged in the Beur jail here.
