UP Police’s STF Exposed A Racket At Meerut University Which Replaced Answer Sheets For Money

Every day a new scam in various industries and sectors of India make headlines. Scams and rackets in various colleges have increased rapidly and are growing as a threat to really deserving students. Police and government have also become aware of this and have started taking strict actions against those who run rackets.

Uttar Pradesh Police’s Special Task Force on Wednesday arrested four college students for running a cheating racket in the Meerut University that is Chaudhary Charan Singh University.

The racket was allegedly run by final year MBBS students of Chaudhary Charan Singh University since 2014. Rs. 6 crores were taken from 600 MBBS students to replace answer sheets. 4 arrested, 5 accused absconding.

The mastermind of the racket, Kaviraj Singh, in connivance with the staff of the university’s answer sheet evaluation department, used to replace the students’ examination copies with those solved by experts. They used to charge Rs 1-1.5 lakh from medical students and Rs 30,000-40,000 from students of other professional courses at the university, the spokesman said.

“Over 600 non-meritorious students became doctors through the racket. A case has been registered at the local police station and the probe should ideally involve tracking down these students who used unfair means to pass the examination,” STF inspector general Amitabh Yash said.

Adding that there was no documented record of such students, the IG said, “It would be an onerous task to bring every defaulter to justice. Now, the ball is in the court of the local police.”

One of the two students is Ayush Kumar, 21, son of a doctor in a super speciality hospital in Gurgaon. The other, Swarnjeet Singh, 22, is a resident of Sangrur in Punjab. The STF has already sealed bundles of answer sheets of semester examinations conducted in 2017.
