Is another fake admission scam surfacing at MS University's Faculty of Technology and Engineering (FTE), Sources have informed TOI that Raopura police has started investigating a scam in which some students were allegedly duped by collecting lakhs of rupees from them promising them admission at FTE. Although Raopura police is tight-lipped about this, MSU officials confirm that the police had approached FTEs dean professor Ambikanandan Misra on 16th Monday, evening seeking details from the faculty. A particular complaint with which the police had approached Misra was regarding a boy being duped of 3 lakh promising him admission at the faculty.
The police had sought details of an employee named Kanu Patel. MSU officials say that Patel, a non-teaching staff member at Oriental Institute, now works as clerk at university’s Experimental School. His wife works with the ADE section at MSUs head office. While confirming that the cops had approached him, Misra told TOI that the cops had shown him a complaint in which it was mentioned that a boy was duped under the pretext of giving admission at the faculty. We informed them that admissions at our faculty are done by the state-level admission committee for professional courses (ACPC). Also, Patel is not an employee of our faculty, said Misra. MSU vice-chancellor professor, Yogesh Singh has assured that once he gets a complete report about the allegations, he will take action against the employee. Ironically, Raopura police inspector, B.M Chaudhary feigned ignorance about the matter. I am not aware of any such investigations. If the police visited the campus, it must be a routine affair, he claimed. “What is shocking is that fact that complaints of such bogus admissions are surfacing even a year after the bogus admission scam that had rocked FTE last year”. The bogus admission scam that had surfaced last year had revealed involvement of government-nominated senate member Kamlesh Mehta, who was working as clerk at FTE. The investigations at that point of time had revealed that on the basis of fake identity cards and fake fee slips, two accused Hemant Zhala and Mitesh Patel had duped 7 lakh each from a large number of students promising them admissions in the faculty. The accused had named Mehta, for being mastermind of the scam. The state government had later suspended Mehta from university’s senate.
