Police on Wednesday said they had arrested three MBBS graduates for impersonation during the Foreign Medical Graduate Examination Screening Test.
The accused have been identified as N Shuhaib Khader (31) from Kerala,Rajesh Gupta (31) from Bihar and Gorakhnath Giri (33) from Uttar Pradesh.
According to police,Gupta had appeared in the examination,held in Kendriya Vidyalaya II,Delhi Cantonment on March 31,on behalf of Khader. Giri had helped Khader find Gupta who later appeared for the test. Gupta showed Khaders passport as identity proof after pasting his own photo in place of Khaders picture. He was arrested, DCP (South West),AK Ojha said.
Gupta told police that he came in touch with Giri,who lured him to appear for the exam in place of Khader for Rs 2.5 lakh.
Giri and Khader were arrested on Monday from New Delhi railway station,police said. They were planning to escape from Delhi at the time of their arrest. Giri did his MBBS in 2007 and is currently trying to gain admission in a post-graduate course. He is the mastermind of the plan, Ojha said.
Giri,police said,had met with students who had studied medicine from Russia and other countries. However,they were unable to qualify a mandatory test in India.
Khader cleared his MBBS from Tajakistan in 2008. However,he too was unable to clear the test for the past four years.When he met Giri,the latter demanded Rs 7 lakh from him to arrange for another person to write the test, Ojha said.
