The Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF) has claimed to have busted a gang allegedly involved in preparation of fake Aadhaar cards. Ten people have been arrested, including kingpin of the gang Saurabh Singh, from Kanpur. Singh was arrested yesterday from World Bank Colony in Barra locality, an STF official said here.
