"The candidates from places like Kolhapur, Sangli, Satara, Solapur and Dhule submitted their documents to the authorities concerned. However, M. P. Singh, director, Army Recruitment Centre, Aurangabad, reportedly noticed that these candidates had passed their SSC and HSC from other places, but had submitted domicile certificates of Aurangabad," said Madhukar Sawant, Inspector Crime Branch, Aurangabad. A similar inquiry was conducted on 400 employees of Jabalpur-based Ordnance Factory Board who had travelled with their families to the North-East to avail of LTC in 2008. However, later, it was found that the e-tickets submitted for claims were fake in several cases, though defence accounts officials could not establish whether all the employees had actually travelled or not.
