Haryana man loses Rs 21.5L in MBBS admission fraud

A businessman from Haryana lost Rs 21.5 lakh to a Delhi-based conman who promised his son an MBBS seat in a reputable college in southern Bengaluru. 

Kishan Lal, of Karnal, first transferred Rs 1.5 lakh as “processing fee” to the bank account of Bhupinder Singh, who runs a consultancy named Vision Enterprises. It was Singh who approached Lal and promised the seat. Lal gave him the documents that showed his son was eligible to study medicine. Singh then asked for the “processing fee”. 

On August 10, Singh asked Lal to come to Bengaluru along with Rs 20 lakh as “capitation” to be paid to the college authorities. On August 13, Lal met Singh at a coffee shop on MG Road and handed over the money. Singh gave him a fake letter and said his son would get a phone call from the college and left the place.

Lal went to the college the next day only to realise he had been duped. Singh was inaccessible. Lal then went to the police.
