Taking forward the investigation into alleged fake admissions under Economically Weaker Section (EWS) quota, Delhi Police’s Crime Branch on Wednesday brought kingpin Mukesh Sharma face to face with the principal of a leading private school in Rohini.
Sharma has disclosed her name during interrogation. Police have unearthed 55 fake admissions at the school.
During their investigation, police found Sharma’s name in the visitors’ entry register at the school. Repeated attempts to contact the principal were unsuccessful as her phone was switched off. Later, Sharma was sent to judicial custody.
In a related development, police on Wednesday said fake EWS admissions had been unearthed at another prominent private school in south Delhi. A student who allegedly got admission at the school through EWS quota always travelled in a Jaguar, police said.
Police said the authorities of the school in south Delhi said that an initial probe had revealed that some students got fake admissions through EWS quota. “After receiving their reply, investigators came to know that one student is a resident of Rajouri Garden and his father is a leading businessman. He always travelled in a Jaguar car and now police are planning to call them for questioning,” a police officer said, adding that investigators have now asked all private schools to check the address of students admitted through EWS quota and prepare a list.
