According to a report, conmen allegedly cheated a Uttar Pradesh doctor of 11.5 lakh on the pretext of offering an MBBS seat for his son in a Bengaluru Medical college. They got access to the data of medical aspirants after paying Rs 5000 to a NEET official in New Delhi.
On receiving the complaint from the doctor, the Cubbon Park Police from the Central Bengaluru has arrested the four accused, who are residents of Odisha.
D Devaraja, the Deputy Commissioner of Police, has said that accused has confessed that they have stolen the data of students after paying the amount to a NEET official.
He further stated that Police would soon visit NEET authorities in New Delhi to question the staff. They suspect it may be a deep-rooted racket.
According to an investigating officer, more such cheating instances are emerging during the probe. Four parents have approached the Police to file complaints stating that they have been cheated similarly, earlier. Further investigations have revealed that there are more victims from Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and West Bengal, he added.
Repeaters Were Targeted
The conmen target the students who were repeating the NEET exam knowing they are desperate to secure an MBBS seat. The accused used to call these students in the disguise of professional agents for medical seats. They would also tell the students that there is no use of writing the exam as seats were being sold and offered to buy seats for them, revealed the officer.
