Ghaziabad: In another case of MBBS Seat scam, a person who works as a teacher at a private school in Delhi has been allegedly cheated of around Rs 30 lakh by a gang who duped her on the pretext of arranging an MBBS seat for her daughter at a government medical college in Kanpur.
According to the police complaint filed by the teacher, who is a resident of Sector 9 Dwarka, the fraudsters somehow got the mobile number of her daughter who had appeared for the NEET examination in 2021, and they promised her a medical seat in the state-run medical college of Ganesh Shankar Vidyarthi Memorial Medical College in Kanpur via the central government quota, reports the Times of India.
The accused then asked the mother and the daughter to meet a person who goes by the name, Aakash Singh at the cloud-9 commercial building in Sector-9 Vaishali.
The teacher said, "On March 5, the accused took me to the college. In one of the rooms, one of the gang members introduced himself as KK Gupta, the director-general of medical education in UP. I was so convinced that I paid the fraudsters Rs 20 lakh in a few days."
The teacher was called to the Cloud-9 office again after a few days. The accused gave documents called admission letters to the complainant, which contained the signature of the college principal. The teacher claimed, "After getting the admission letter, I had given the accused another Rs 10 lakh. They also took a demand draft of Rs 38,500 as admission-related expenses."
However, the fraud came to light when the complainant and her daughter went to the college to complete the admission process. When she went there, she realized that more than around 20 people were cheated in a similar manner. The teacher said, "The mobile phones of the accused remain switched off. Despite several attempts, we could not get in touch with the accused."
Abhay Kumar Mishra, circle officer of Indirapuram told TOI, "We have received a complaint and an investigation is on. Soon, police will lodge an FIR and will take help from the anti-fraud cell to crack the case."
