Fake MBBS marksheet produced to secure MD seat, Medico arrested
Bengaluru: A 27- year old MBBS Graduate has been arrested by local police for producing fake marksheet to secure admission in the Doctor of Medicine (MD) course.
The case concerned Rajesh, an MBBS graduate, who appeared in the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test Postgraduate (NEET PG) examination where he performed well. He further appeared in the counselling on March 23 at the office of the Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) where he submitted his documents along with his MBBS mark sheet. He secured an MD seat at the Sapthagiri Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Centre, Hesaraghatta.
A few days later, the Karnataka Examinations Authority received an anonymous email that mentioned that the graduation scorecard produced by Rajesh was not genuine and urged the authorities to cross-check the document.
An official of the Examinations Authority filed a complaint in the Malleshwaram police station suspecting a major racket behind it and requested an investigation. The police examined the documents and found them to be forged.
The Karnataka Examinations Authority, then, asked Rajesh to report to the office for the verification of his documents. The police nabbed him when he came to report to the office on April 26th.
A police official informed Daiji World that Rajesh ‘has confessed that he has graduated in MBBS and also his scores in NEET PG are genuine but the marks cards are fake’ which he got from a friend who is now absconding.
According to the investigation conducted by the police, Rajesh, indeed, completed his MBBS course. However, he faked his marks card to get a higher rank in the NEET PG. Surprisingly Rajesh had performed well in the actual entrance test except for the marks he scored in MBBS, reports the Daiji World.
The accused was produced before the magistrate and given to the custody for further investigation of the matter.
Police are hunting for a middleman who allegedly helped the MBBS graduate fabricate his marks cards to secure the MD seat at the medical college, reports Deccan Herald.
The police team is suspecting a big racket behind it.
A Senior Officer of the KEA told the Deccan Herald, “This is the first such case. We will now re-examine the documents submitted by all the students.”
