Three of a gang accused of cheating students arrested

Jaipur:Police arrested three persons here and claimed to have busted a gang which allegedly duped students of their money by promising them admission in medical colleges.

“Acting on a tip-off, a special team was formed to probe the matter. Four days back, one of the accused, Nasim Ahmed was arrested from Jaipur. Another accused, Sanji Ranjan was nabbed three days back while the third, Ranjan Kumar, was arrested today,” DCP Anshuman Bhomiya said.

“The accused operated from Jaipur and Delhi. They used to get details of students seeking admission in medical colleges and call them promising admission,” he said.

Primary investigation showed the accused used to secure admission for some of the candidates in different medical colleges including one in Jaipur, as well as in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, under management and NRI quota by charging lakhs of rupees each, the DCP said.

However, in most cases they failed to secure admission but did not return the money they took from the candidates, Bhomiya said, adding the accused have allegedly cheated candidates from Rajasthan, Haryana, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh.

The role of the colleges and universities is also being examined, he said.
