    NEW DELHI — Two more Indian airline pilots with fake certificates have been arrested in a growing investigation of corruption in awarding aviation licenses, an official said Tuesday.

    The two working for budget airline SpiceJet were arrested Monday in the western city of Jaipur for obtaining commercial pilot licenses by submitting forged flying certificates, said Umesh Mishra, an anti-corruption official.

    Last week Indian aviation authorities ordered officials to check the documents of all Indian and foreign airline pilots working in the country after at least four were found to be flying using fake documents.
