A 50-year-old man, who claimed to possess several medical science degrees, was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly cheating several people of over Rs 1 crore on the pretext of getting their children admission in premier medical, engineering and management institutions in India and abroad.

Sunil Sadashiv Kulkarni was arrested from Sarai Kale Khan following investigation into a cheating case filed against him at the Lajpat Nagar police station by one Shakshi Kiran, relative of a retired Indian Police Service officer.

"The complainant told us that Kulkarni, who had introduced himself as chairman of a private firm, had promised her that his company would nominate her son Abhiuday as a research associate in Hamburg University soon. He had claimed Abhiuday would get a monthly salary of 1000 Euros," Ajay Chaudhry, additional commissioner of police (southeast), said. Kulkarni in return demanded around Rs 3 lakh.

Once Chandra, who suspected nothing, deposited the amount in his private bank account, he started avoiding her calls.
