Delhi Police have busted a pan-India fake degree racket operating through a city “education society”, with regional offices and over 40 agents in other parts of the country, which had allegedly sold more than 50,000 forged marksheets and certificates of universities and school boards.
The racket was busted after police arrested three people on a complaint. It found that the gang even advertised its services besides running fake websites of over 30 education boards. Links to these websites, which appeared just like the real ones, were given to clients for verifying the ‘authenticity’ of their documents.
Police said several thousand people had got jobs in the government and private sectors on the basis of the forged certificates. The three arrested accused were identified as Pankaj Arora, Pawitter Singh and Gopal Krishan.
