The accused sold state level and national level bogus certificates in Trampoline and Tambling sports events to the candidates for Rs 25,000 to Rs 3 lakh. In all, 238 such bogus certificates were issued to the candidates. Accused Patange and Rathod used to search the candidates and accused Veer used to prepare the bogus certificates for them.
