Bhopal: A sex for marks scandal hit Rani Durgavati University in Jabalpur. A first year medical student's complaint, that she was told, could get her marks increased if she slept with someone, blew the lid off the scam.
"Even before the first year results were out, I was approached by Prerna of fourth year saying I was failing in two subjects and that I could get my marks increased in re-evaluation if I slept with one Raju Khan. I just ignored her but when my result came I was failing in the two subjects that I was told," said the complainant who is a first year student of Netaji Subhash Chandra Medical College.
Investigations revealed that the Controller of examinations SH Rana and the Deputy Registrar of the examination department of the Rani Durgavati University Ravindra Kakoria were involved in the scam. Both of them have now been arrested along with the kingpin Raju Khan who used to arrange students for them. The manager of the Blue Moon hotel where these students were taken has also been arrested.
Superintendent of Police Santosh Singh said, "We are investigating into the case. We have seized all the mark sheets and it appears several officials of the university are involved."
Police have raided the University several times in the past two days. Students have also threatened to indefinitely shut down the university if all the culprits were not booked. Meanwhile, the fourth year student who allegedly approached the complainant and the owner of the hotel are absconding.
