They forged their re-evaluation results to get promotion

Six former students of Dyal Singh College (morning) have been booked for allegedly forging their re-evaluation results to get promoted to the third year. An inquiry is under way against two others. The role of a Class IV employee is also being investigated.

The college authorities had recently lodged a complaint at the South Campus police station alleging that eight of the students had used forged re-evaluation results to get promoted to the third year. “We registered the case involving six students on Thursday. It has been alleged that the students had not passed their examination. The six accused first applied for re-evaluation and then while taking admission in the next year, they submitted documents showing that they had passed the previous year examination,” said a police officer. The initial apprehension was that the documents had been forged at the examination branch.

It is alleged that in some of the cases, the students had managed to secure their promotion to the third year. However, the other cases of alleged forgeries were detected by the college authorities and cross-checked with the Delhi University records in time.

Stating that investigations were at the preliminary stage, a police officer said it was too early to say if it was an organised racket.

However, as the modus operandi employed in all the cases was the same, the police are trying to ascertain if it was the handiwork of one person. “We are yet to study the entire inquiry report, on the basis of which further action would be taken. The role of a Class IV employee is also being probed,” said another police officer, adding that complaints against two more students lodged at the Lodhi Colony police station were also being inquired into.

Not long ago, a gang involved in securing admission of students at Ramjas College allegedly on forged Class XII marks-sheet was smashed in North Delhi.

The racket was purportedly being run by one Naresh Tau and his accomplices.

The accused persons, who had got over 20 students enrolled with the college, would charge Rs.2 lakh to Rs.6 lakh from each candidate.
