Narasimharaja Police, who have arrested two persons for allegedly cheating students by promising to get them MBBS seats in various medical colleges, have seized Rs. 24 lakh in cash, pass books of various bank accounts and a Skoda car from them.

The nabbed fraudsters have been identified as Dipen of Mumbai and Mansoor Ahmed of Bangalore.

It is alleged that the duo who demanded Rs. 22 lakh from Avinash, a student from Andhra Pradesh promising him a MBBS seat in JSS Medical College in Mysore, had taken Rs. 1 lakh in advance from him.

Meanwhile, the accused demanded the remaining money from Avinash, saying that they had succeeded in getting the seat.

But Avinash’s parents refused to pay the balance money, saying that they would pay the rest after confirmation of the seat and called the Principal of JSS Medical College where they learnt that the admissions had been closed and no such transaction had taken place.

Sensing trouble, Avinash’s parents, besides alerting N.R. Police, contacted the accused and informed them that they were ready to make the payment and during the conversation, the accused invited them to a hotel where they were staying.

While the parents arrived at the hotel with the Police, the officers arrested the accused and recovered ATM cards, pass books of various bank accounts, cell phones, two PAN cards, prospectus of various medical colleges, driving licenses and a Skoda car (KA-03-MH-1812) and produced the accused before a local court.

DCP A.N. Rajanna said that during interrogation, it came to light that a similar case had been registered against Mansoor Ahmed in K.R. Police Station two months ago in which Mansoor had allegedly cheated a person after collecting Rs. 8 lakh.

DCP Rajanna supervised N.R. Sub Division ACP C.D. Jagadish, Inspector Dhananjaya, SIs Purushotham, Mustaq Pasha and staff in the nabbing and seizing operation.
