King George’s University for ‘Munnabhai MBBS’ tribe?

LUCKNOW: Is the King George’s Medical University in Lucknow fast becoming a hub of imposters and admission racketeers? Reports say there have been three incidents over the past eight months, the most recent being discovery of yet another racket, this week.

The university was forced to take action after a series of admission scams in which KGMU students were caught impersonating or acting as paper solvers in medical entrance examinations of Punjab, Delhi, Bihar, Maharashtra, Karnataka and West Bengal.

Some remember that between 2002-2006 , there were similar incidents, when two teachers and over 30 students were arrested in different cases of paper leak, impersonation, paper solving, forgery, kidnapping, rioting and running seat-fixing rackets.

The Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force on Monday busted a ‘Bollywood film stye’ racket that provided solved question papers to paying candidates attempting the Combined Pre-Medical Test 2015. STF arrested 12 people, including three MBBS students and a BTech student, in Lucknow for allegedly conspiring to solve and leak the CPMT paper in collusion with the staff of some exam centres. The kingpin of the racket has been identified as Rashid, who operates from Bengaluru.

In October 2014, an FIR was registered against two KGMU teachers and other staff members as well as career consultants and coaching owners for allegedly running an admission racket to the MBBS course. They were promising admission to KGMU through ‘backdoor’ means. Later, a teacher was arrested.

Well, we can only imagine what sort of value degrees from such medical colleges have, if their graduates qualify through cheating and not studying….
