Bhopal: A city based doctor’s daughter was duped to the tune of Rs 4 lakh by seven persons who promised her admission in a private college in Pune. The cheaters posing as medical college officials persuaded the girl and her father to part with the cash on assurance of her admission in their institute. However, the girl later found out that she has been duped.
Acting on girl’s complaint, Maharashtra police arrested five imposters Amit, Sandeep, Rahul Sharma, Kaushik and Rahul Tiwari. Two of their aides Surya Khare and Rajat Khare are on the run. The case diary was transferred to Govindpura police, Bhopal.
Govindpura police said that complainant Nikita Tiwari, a resident of Shakti Nagar, had appeared in a medical entrance exam after which she received a call. The person posing as college official promised to get her admitted in the institute on payment of Rs 4 lakh.
Nikita along with her father went to Pune in April. Presenting themselves as college officials, the imposters met father and the daughter and convinced that she would be given admission in the institute. Unaware of their ill-intensions, the doctor handed over the cash to them. Later the fraudsters even offered Nikita allotment letter of the institute.
However, later when Nitika reached the college, to her shock, the authorities told her that she has not been given admission. College administration expressed ignorance about the entire issue. The girl then approached police and lodged a complaint. A police team from Bhopal will leave for the neighbouring state to look for the absconding culprits.
