    2) There are certain people in this group regarding whom we don't know if they have a criminal record or not.

    3) There are certain people in this group about whom we don't know if they have a criminal record or not.

    Gratefully,

    They are all overly wordy and unnatural.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    We don't know if some people in this group have a criminal record [or not].
    There are some people in this group whose criminal history we don't know.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
