Police smell scam in MD counselling

Police smell scam in MD counselling

Police are hunting for a middleman who allegedly helped an MBBS graduate fabricate his marks cards to secure an MD seat at the Sapthagiri Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Centre in the city. 

Police suspect it’s a bigger scam. The KEA had recently received an e-mail from an unknown sender who claimed that Dr Rajesh Kumar Rai, from Samastipur, Bihar, had submitted fake marks card during the seat selection process. The sender asked the officials to re-examine his certificates, especially the marks cards. 

Police later arrested Rai for cheating. 

Rai, however, told the police that he fabricated his marks cards on the advice of a tout. He also told the police that he had indeed studied MBBS and had done well in NEET PG. 

A senior police officer said only after the arrest of the tout could they ascertain if other students had gotten into the system illegally.
