Unauthorised People Gain Access To Aadhaar Information, Enrollment Officer Booked

This incident is in complete violation of the existing guidelines and is a threat to our digital security.

Aurangabad Police have booked Mangesh Sitaram Bhalerao, an Aadhaar enrolment officer who was caught giving illegal access to confidential Aadhaar-related information to several unauthorised personnel. Bhalerao made a rubber impression of his thumb, which was used to access UIDAI data.

The rubber stamp was distributed among selective staff members that he had appointed illegally. This stamp gave access to Aadhaar software and enabled the “illegal” staff to create new users and update information of existing Aadhaar card holders. These officers fetched a large amount of money for carrying out these registrations.

Bhalerao has been charged for cheating and forgery and his subordinates have been booked under section 420 (cheating and dishonesty), 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating) and 471 (using as genuine a forged document or electronic record) of the Indian Penal Code.

This incident is in complete violation of the existing guidelines and is a threat to our digital security.

Bhalerao is a resident of Gangapur tehsil and is under police custody at present.
