Mumbai police on Wednesday booked Faraz Malik, son of former minister and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Nawab Malik, in a case pertaining to alleged submission of forged documents for his wife Hamleen's visa extension.
A case was registered against Faraz Mailk and his wife, a French citizen, under the Foreigners Act 1946 and relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code by the Kurla police.
The case was filed on the complaint of a Special Branch officer.
According to the police, Malik's son allegedly submitted fake documents, which were prepared in Kurla, between March 2 and June 23, last year.
