27-year-old Rajesh Kumar was held for producing forged documents to get a PG medical seat in Karnataka after he had attempted NEET PG examinations.
Bengaluru: Rajesh Kumar Roy, hailing from Bihar, was arrested for submitting fake documents to get a postgraduate medical seat in Karnataka.
Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) found the 27-year-old MBBS graduate guilty of producing fake documents. The accused had appeared for NEET PG examinations.
Rajesh had got an MD (general medicine) seat in Sapthagiri Medical College. According to the police, the papers which Rajesh got for his document verification on March 23 looked to be forged. He was asked to come again with the documents on April 26. By that time, KEA had identified the documents to be fabricated.
Rajesh confessed that he had forged the documents after a middleman had advised him to do so, when he was confronted about it on April 26.
Shilpa M, KEA administrative officer, stated that the reason for Rajesh submitting fake documents is not yet clear. She stated that since students cannot apply for two seats simultaneously, Rajesh might have thought of applying for two colleges by producing bogus documents.
However, police have suspected that a racket is involved, wherein students’ marks cards are forged, after which students are made to give them away so that they can be used for ineligible candidates
