A government doctor accused in the MBBS admission scam has revealed to the police that he took money from two girl students to facilitate their admission in the government medical college here.
Dr Sudhir Kashyap has told the police he took Rs 2-2.5 lakh from two girl students Sonali Sayyam and Sandhya Paraste to secure their admission to the MBBS course in year 2008 and 2009 at the medical college, additional superintendent of police (ASP) Ashish Khare said. The accused doctor told he shared money with Sanjay Singh, a resident of Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, to help the girls.
The two girls were recently removed from the Jabapur Medical College on verification of their PMT test documents and a case was registered against them. During interrogation, however, the girls had not disclosed the name of Kashyap. Instead they took names of certain persons, including two deceased persons.
The doctor was initially arrested by Gwalior police from Shivpuri few days ago. During interrogation, he told police of helping certain number of students, including two students admitted in the medical college at Jabalpur.
The ASP said the doctor was taken in the remand here for interrogation after his disclosure to the Gwalior police. Now the police will re-interrogate the girls.
Kashyap has done his MBBS course from the government medical college, Rewa, wherein he took admission in year 2001 and completed his graduation in year 2012. Thereafter he joined the NRHM and was working at Shivpuri.
Kashyap is second in series of doctors arrested in the medical admission scam by the city police as earlier the police had arrested Dr Ajit Singh who has been charged with providing impersonators to three MBBS students to write PMT.
