The Crime Branch of Delhi Police has arrested a man for his involvement in a racket that had duped several students of huge sums for admitting them to medical course in central Asian countries. The men behind the scam charged hefty amounts for enrolling the victims in lucrative course in institutions abroad.
Police said on Thursday that the accused, Gopalan Anish Acharya, the third in a trio of racketeers, operated out of an apartment in Dwarka. “A team was formed to follow up on the inputs we received from Chhattisgarh Police. After his arrest from his house, Acharya admitted to being a part of the racket that had victimised numerous aspirants,” said Ravindra Yadav, joint commissioner (Crime). The two others, Arvind Ghosh and Vaishno, had been arrested earlier and a case of cheating under Section 420 of the Indian Penal Code registered against them at Durg in Chhattisgarh. Delhi Police had assisted their counterparts from Chhattisgarh in arresting one of them in the capital.
