An animation school has pulled a vanishing act on its students, many of whom had taken loans to pay their fees. Now, students of Digital Asia School of Animation, a private institute which was located on Jangli Maharaj Road, have approached the Deccan Gymkhana police stating that the institution took the fees from them, then closed down without notice and before the course could be completed. Four students including Archana Prabhakar Salger, Gitika Pathak and Bhaskar Belkhede approached the police with their complaint.
Speaking to Pune Mirror, Archana said that about 80 students have been cheated by the institute. “We all took admission at Dignified Attributes Studies of Animation (DASA), a franchise of the Digital Asia School of Animation. The director asked us to pay 1.50 lakh as fees and most of us took loans from banks or borrowed money from relatives to pay the fees”, said Archana (24 year). All students took admission for the two-year programme in animation. The course took place for a couple of months but then problems arose. The teaching faculty hardly visited the institute. Nothing progressed until January 2011. Then, on February 6, 2012, we came to the institute and found it locked, she added. “The students spoke to institute authorities including Sharadchandra Parchure but there was no response. Archana added that the institute authorities had now simply stopped listening. We want our money back”, she said. Mirror visited the building on J. M. Road out of which the institute used to function. Local residents and security staff said; that the institution had moved out. We don’t know where it is now, said the security guard. Parchure and others did not respond to our calls. Senior PI Manohar Joshi of Deccan Gymkhana police station told Mirror that the police have initiated an inquiry against the institute authorities. We are yet to lodge a complaint but we have summoned institute authorities to verify the allegations. “We will lodge a complaint after completing the enquiry”, he said.
