The examinees, with the employee’s help, fudged the CAT scores to get admission in better-ranked non-IIM institutes using their CAT scores.
The IIM-CAT official website www.catiim.in is hosted by Web Weavers and at least 80 out of 2,14,068 CAT scores published on the website had discrepancies.
The role of Afaq, who manages its Kozhikode office, cropped up when a police team from there quizzed the company owner Shuja-ul Hasan in Lucknow on Thursday. During the interrogation the cops also found that three CAT examinees from Lucknow were involved in the scam.
Sources said the three examinees are also suspected to have collected money from other examinees for increasing their scores.
