4 nabbed for hacking GSPC website, manipulating data, making fake mark sheets


The cyber cell of Ahmedabad has nabbed two coaching class owners and one youth from Vadodara and another from Uttar Pradesh in connection with a fake marksheet/registration scam.

Earlier a complaint had been registered with the cyber cell where a gang had hacked the website of Gujarat State Pharmacy Council (GSPC) and changed the data to prepare fake registration, marksheet and degree certificates for several candidates.

Gujarat State Pharmacy Council Registrar (GSPC) Jasubhai Chaudhary had filed a complaint with the cyber cell in which he had said that one Mitsu Shah of Chhota Udepur had got a fake registration from GSPC as a pharmacist.

He had also got a fake duplicate B.Pharm certificate from RK University. The complaint said this was done after someone hacked the GSPC website, changed the data and uploaded the fake registration, marksheet and degree certificate.
