The Delhi Police have arrested two persons for their involvement in a fake degree racket.
The duo used to provide fake degrees of various courses, including those of Ph.D and B.Tech, to students.
The arrests came after investigation into a complaint filed by one Kamaljeet, who became suspicious of the institute he had enrolled in for a BA course.
"We have arrested Omkar Singh, 23, and Sanjeev Kumar, 48. While Singh owns an institute in Hari Nagar, Kumar runs one in Faridabad," said Arun Kampani, DCP (special cell).
Police have also recovered 37 fake degrees, mark sheets and certificates of higher education courses from various universities in India and Educations Boards.
These degrees were usually sold at Rs 40,000 to people without the necessary qualification for jobs in private firms where hardly anyone verifies educational qualifications.
