Additional Commissioner of Police (Crime) Ashok Chand said on August 25, the Crime Branch received tip-off, following which a team led by ACP KPS Malhotra laid a trap in Dwarka.

“We had information that the accused would come in a Ford Endeavour. Based on that we laid a trap and arrested Arvind Yadav, a resident of Gurgaon. We recovered forged documents and a forged stamp of a doctor in a government hospital from his possession. Information provided by Arvind led to the arrest of the other two,” Chand said.

Arvind’s associate Daya is a retired teacher from Bulandshahr in Uttar Pradesh. According to police, Daya has a sound knowledge of the Uttar Pradesh education system and helped Yadav prepare the marksheets. In 2013, the two had helped the Venkateswara student get admission with a forged marksheet of Class XII.

Police said Arvind had graduated from Hindu College in Delhi University, as a result of which he knew about the admission process. Arvind reportedly told police that he had started a transport business, which failed. After that, he allegedly took to selling fake certificates.

Chand said for each admission process, the duo charged Rs 3-5 lakh. Arvind told police that he had tried to use the same modus operandi in 2011, but had failed to get a forged marksheet.

According to police Arvind claimed that he had supplied 10 students with forged documents to secure admission at Venkateswara College.

“He claims that he used a doctor’s certificate and seal from the Bara Hindu Rao Hospital and got one of the students admission through the physical disability criteria. In the forged papers, the student reportedly has weak eyesight — less than 60 per cent visibility. We have informed the college authorities and asked them to check the papers,” an investigating officer said.

Police said so far, the role of college insiders had not come up in investigation, but added that the possibility could not be ruled out.
