Two more doctors were arrested from central Delhi for allegedly taking the help of a racket involved in the leaking of the post graduate medical entrance papers for admission in MD course.
Sai Balender Bakshi (35) and Vimal Dangi (31), who appeared in the entrance exam conducted by AIIMS on Sunday, were arrested from Rajinder Nagar on Thursday.
The came under police net following investigations after the arrest of five persons, including a doctor and a medical student, on Sunday.
Bakshi and Dangi had availed the services of this racket, which was trying to leak the entrance papers and help some candidates by providing answers over mobile phone and blue tooth.
The gang, which allegedly charged Rs 25-35 lakh, used a sophisticated software to email images of the question paper taken by two MBAs, posing as PG aspirants, using mobile phones and blue tooth concealed in their shirts.
The alleged kingpin of the racket was Mohit Chaudhury (23), a second year MBBS student from Indore and Dr Amit Puniya (23), who used the services of the gang. Two MBAs and a graduate helped Chaudhury in the operations.
Bakshi and Dangi had come in contact with a doctor doing post graduation in a medical college in Indore where Chaudhary was also doing his MBBS course. The doctor told them that Chaudhary could help them clear the PG entrance test.
"They contacted Chaudhary in the first week of January and a deal was struck in which Chaudhary told them that if they qualified, they would have to pay Rs 18 lakh each. In order to ensure that they did not default on the payment, Chaudhary kept with him all the original certificates of both the doctors," Ashok Chand, deputy commissioner of police (Crime), said.
They met Chaudhary in a hotel in Paharganj. Chaudhary allegedly gave them shirts with blue tooth stitched on them, a minute earphone, and a SIM card. The mobile phones to be used by the doctors were procured by both the doctors from a shop in Connaught Place by using their respective debit cards.
Dangi hails from Udaipur and did his MBBS from Ukraine. In 2009, he worked as a Clinical Researcher in a private hospital in Delhi and a year later, he joined another government hospital as Research Officer and till date he is employed there.
Bakshi, who hails from Jamshedpur, did his MBBS from Karnataka.
"From 2009 to 2011 he tried to get into Post Graduate Medical Courses but could not succeed. He then joined a Private Sector Company in NOIDA as a Research Medical Officer and till date is working there," Chand said.
