Four medical students, including a female, were arrested for allegedly impersonating while attempting a Pre-medical Test (PMT) for money at Dhamtari district in Chhattisgarh, police said.

Police have arrested Sumeet Kumar Singh, Sandeep Anand, Santosh Kumar Singh and Ragini Ranjan for appearing the PMT for money, while one Ashok Kumar Ojha is still absconding, Superintendent of Police, Dhamtari, Neha Champawat told PTI over phone.

Police received information that a youth was impersonating for another student Semanth Kumar Markam in the PMT examination organised by the Chhattisgarh Vocational Examination Board yesterday, she said.

When this youth - Sumeet - was interrogated he revealed about his associates, Champawat said.

After learning about the impersonators, police raided a lodge and also arrested other students.

The accused hailed from Bihar. While three youths were students of Darbhanga medical college, one was preparing for his medical tests.

They had agreed to appear for the PMT exams on behalf of some Chhattisgarh students for a sum of Rs one lakh from each.

The youths were given hall tickets of Semanth Kumar Markam (Kanker city), Praveen Saurabh (Korba), Swapnil Dhrutalahre (Bilaspur) and Arvind Kumar Chandrakar (Abhanpur).
