Kolkata: One person was arrested from Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh by West Bengal CID for his alleged involvement in a medical admission racket.
Vishnu Prashad Chaubey alias K N Jha (41) was arrested from his residence at Gorakhpur of Jabalpur district in Madhya Pradesh for his involvement in the medical admission racket unearthed in 2015, a CID official said.
The racket, operating throughout the country, used to provide fake caste certificates for money to MBBS aspirants for their admission in reserved categories.

There are about 20 cases booked against Gupta in different states of the country.
“The arrested accused has jumped bail in one case and there is another case of child trafficking pending against him in Kurseong police station,” he said.
He will be produced at a court in Jabalpur tomorrow for transit remand and thereafter to a court in Siliguri, he added.
