Fake marksheet scam in Ahmedabad
Earlier in Ahmedabad, the Vastrapur cop sent a few of their members as potential students/clients and nabbed two people red-handed for providing fake mark sheets.
Police said the gang offered Gujarat University fake mark sheets for Rs10 lakh and Madras University ones for Rs3 lakh. They also offered fake transcripts, regional certificates among others.
Two of the gang members have been nabbed while the mastermind -Chintan Patel- is still absconding. Police are investigating as to how many such mark sheets have been made by the gang so far.
The scam was being run from one Ramjarukha Apartment in Bodakdev.
The cops got a female constable to pose as a student who needed to buy a marksheet. The female constable Renuka got in touch with the gang members posing as a student who wanted to go abroad and hence wanted a fake marksheet of Gujarat University. The cops nabbed the accused when the woman went to collect the fake mark sheets and hand over the money that the gang had demande.
