A city resident in Ludhiana has alleged that he was duped of Rs 17.5 lakh after being promised a seat in a medical college. Allegedly, a university employee has put him to task on the pretext of arranging a seat in the medical college.
A police complaint registered at the local police station has revealed few details. The accused has apparently asked the complaint to pay the heavy sum in installments for procuring a seat in Mata Gujri Memorial Medical College at Purnia in Bihar. Rajiv, the victim in this case, was looking for admission of his son in a medical college when he met the accused.
Rajiv called for a police investigation after he alleged that the accused failed to deliver on his promise of arranging a medical seat, and also did not return the money he has taken for the purpose.
This is a second such incident after the recent case of a Delhi-based agent duped the HOD of orthopaedic at the Dayanand Medical College of Rs 1.5 crore in Ludhiana.
