The dream of getting his daughter a seat in a local medical college landed a father in thick soup, when he was duped to the extent of Rs. 10 lac by an imposter claiming to get them the privileged seat. A complaint to the effect was lodged at the Hiran Magri Police Station yesterday.

According to Police, the daughter of Ashok Kumar, a resident of Aria, Bihar was seeking admission in some private college accredited by the Medical Council of India, when they were contacted by a person who said his name was Abhishek and lived in Udaipur and could help in getting admission for his daughter at the Geetanjali Medical College, Udaipur.

Furthermore, he said he had good connections inside the college, which would quicken the process of admission, as he allegedly also ran a consultancy titled ‘Path Finder’ – which helped students getting admission in Mumbai, Ujjain and Udaipur.

After conversing on many occasions, on 9th Sept, 2012 Asohk Kumar, asked for the process of admission. Abhishek told them to make a Demand Draft in the name of Geetanjali Medical College of Rs. 2.9 lacs and should carry the donation amount i.e. Rs. 10 lac himself to Udaipur.

According to Ashok Kumar, he did the same and reached Udaipur along with his daughter on 22nd Sept.

He contacted Abhishek who then called them both to Geetanjali Medical College on 24th Sept, where Abhishek allegedly took them to a person whom he introduced as L.K. Jain, HOD, Anatomy Department and afterwards took them to the canteen, where Ashok gave a bag of Rs. 10 lac to Abhishek who took it saying he will hand over the amount to the concerned person and will call them back on 1st Oct.

Ashok Kumar and her daughter then waited on 1st Oct to receive a call which never came, then they went to Geetanjali Medical College where Ashok found out that there is no admission on the name of his daughter.

They have been searching for Abhishek all these days, but after no success they finally reported and lodged the complaint at Hiran Magri police Station yesterday.

Geetanjali administration denied the involvement of any of their employees and also refute the position of L.K Jain as HOD of Anatomy Department.
