NEW DELHI: A shocking case came out in Delhi University where the police have filed case against four students who allegedly got admission in Ramjas college on the basis of forged marksheets and other documents.
According to the police, “The four cases could just be the tip of a major admission racket in Ramjas College. We would register more FIRs in the coming days after scrutinizing the documents relating to the other 25 complaints.” The college's internal committee says it has found evidence of as many as 29 fake admissions this year.
” Going by the scale of the operation, the involvement of a gang of forgers and racketeers was being looked into. The method of operation in the four cases had a lot of similarities which again has strengthened suspicion about a single gang being involved,” said Delhi Police sources.
However, according to the principal of Ramjas college, Rajendra Prasad, “We had given all complaints to the Delhi Police last month after an internal inquiry found anomalies in admissions , but the police have not registered cases in all the complaints."
Among the four students who are the main culprits in this forgery, three of them had taken admission in B Com programme and the other one had taken admission in BA programme. The police have now registered FIRs against all these students. The FIRs have been charged under sections 420 (criminal conspiracy) and 468/471 (forgery) of IPC.
According to a senior police officer, “The four boys had submitted forged 12th standard marksheets as well as forged provisional certificates. They were attending classes."
Acording to the sources, “the college's internal committee that probed the 2011-12 admissions had also tried to find out if any college official was involved in the racket. After this probe drew a blank, the police were informed about the cases. This the second major admission racket unearthed in Delhi University this year.”
