Rs 50 lakh for MBBS at Safdarjang medical college

The Delhi Police are probing into a complaint of Rs 50 lakh asked for an MBBS seat at Vardhman Mahavir Medical College, attached with south Delhi’s Safdarjang Hospital. The seat was promised under Nominee of Government of India (NGOI) quota.

Manoj Aggarwal, a homeopathic doctor from west Delhi’s Naraina, paid the amount for his son’s admission. He and his son were told to come at Safdarjang Hospital, where they were made to fill an application form.

They were also introduced to a doctor, Dwarka-resident Virender Kumar. It was claimed that the admission would be provided through Kumar, an officer with the Medical Council of India (MCI).

Aggarwal, who practises at the DDA Shopping Complex in Naraina, also made a payment at the parking lot of the hospital. But no seat was provided to his son till date.

In his statement, the victim told the police that he was duped after receiving a bulk text message sent on his mobile phone from ‘DZ-JSSEDU’.

A man named Anil Kumar Rathore was offering direct admission in MBBS. He claimed to be from Laxmi Nagar-based JSS International Education Services, police said.

Rathore claimed that the firm had vast experience in medical admission and providing consultation to thousands of medical aspirants. He also said that he provided admission in reserved quota.

“Out of my curiosity, I called on his mobile number and asked from where he got my mobile number. He replied that he can get my son’s admission in MBBS,” Aggarwal stated in his complaint.

In the beginning, Aggarwal was not satisfied with Rathore’s reply. But Rathore kept on telling him different stories for his satisfaction. “My son completed his class XII last year and was keen to get admission in MBBS. I asked him if he can get my son’s admission in a government medical college,” the complainant added.

Rathore assured that he would get it done in Vardhman Mahavir Medical College under NGOI quota.

A case under section 120-B (criminal conspiracy) and 420 (cheating) of the Indian Penal Code has been filed with crime branch police station. A team is looking into the case, but no arrests have been made so far.
