BHOPAL : The Police and special investigation team ( SIT) formed to look into impersonation racket and admission and job fraud related with Vyapam, are groping in dark in absence of official records with MP Professional Examination Board.
The police could not find official papers, OMR sheet and application form of racketeer Dr Deepak adav, arrested in PMT impersonator rackets in Gwalior. Vyapam officials categorically said they did not have records related with the accused who qualified PMT in 1996, said sources.
A son- in- law of DIG Hari Singh adav, Dr Deepak operates a private hospital in Gwalior after completing MBBS. He was running a racket of impersonators.
The SIT, on the clue that he too got admission in medical college fraudulently and with the help of Dr Jagdish Sagar, another racketeer, approached Vyapam to get his original papers.
” The Vyapam officials posted earlier had destroyed records of before 2008,” said officials. Several district police also approached to the board for original records of PMT candidates in cases pending for long time. Indore police also sought records of some candidates but failed to get them. ” Police had kept pending old cases of impersonation in the medical test and now they have sought records following the High Court’s directives to sort out pending cases. Every day eight to ten police stations sends their request for records but they are not now available,” said the officials wishing not to be quoted.
System Analyst Nitin Mahindra particularly destroyed the records by declaring their as waste. In some cases he took approval from higher- ups and in some cases, he destroyed OMR sheets and application forms of candidates without approval.
The police could not proceed in fraud cases without original papers.
