Kurnool: A couple that fooled a medical aspirant of Rs. 15 lakh, on the promise of helping him procure a medical seat, was presented before the press on Thursday, in the presence of Adoni, DSP, YBPTA Prasad.
The DSP in his media address revealed that Aravind, a resident of Mantralayam, had lodged a complaint against Ramana Rao alias Venkataramana and his wife Nirmala alias Nirmala Kannan, residents of Nellore, for collecting the sum stated above on the promise of a medial seat to his son.
