KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a couple from India and now living in Kansas illegally obtained their U.S. citizenship and committed bank fraud.

Sixty-year-old Ajay Dave and 59-year-old Parul Dave of Overland Park are charged with two counts each of bank fraud and making false statements on their U.S. citizenship applications. They also are charged with four counts involving obtaining U.S. citizenship by fraud.

Court documents allege the Daves provided false financial information and tax returns to a bank to get a $417,000 mortgage loan on their home. They also allegedly provided false information to obtain a $238,500 loan to refinance a Topeka home.

Prosecutors allege the Daves came to the U.S. in 1999 and didn’t reveal the alleged bank fraud while applying to become naturalized U.S. citizens in 2012 and 2013.
