The Inside Story

Education Racket Busted in Mumbai, Maharashtra

In a major breakthrough, a cyber-crime police team and Unit 8 of the Crime Branch in Mumbai have identified six people involved in impersonating 87 candidates during the Narsee Monjee Management Aptitude Test (NMAT) held from October 11 to December 19, 2012. The NMAT is conducted by the Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS) University based in Mumbai, Maharashtra for its MBA programs. Of the six accused, one impersonator named Alok Kumar has been caught while the rest are still at large.

The accused not only impersonated for the test but also organised the malpractice. They used forged identity proofs to get past the NMAT verification systems. One of the accused promised a student to secure passing marks for Rs 15 lakh through management quota. After taking an advance of Rs 7.5 lakh from the student, the accused employed a dummy candidate to take the test in place of the student. The other accused have been traced and arrested from Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, and Pune.

The NMIMS has debarred 61 out of 87 students from admission as their photographs were found to be not matching those given at the time of the test. The police have also identified two companies, Career Guardian from Ghaziabad and Meta Consultancy from New Delhi which were allegedly involved in these criminal practices. The police have already identified the location of the other five impersonators and would be nabbing them soon.
