Sector 20 police today raided and arrested a group of well-educated individuals who were running a full-fledged agency to dupe aspiring MBBS students. The raid was conducted on the complaint of Ram Prakash Sharma who was one of the clients of the gang and had paid them money for the MBBS course.
The mastermind of the gang was Anuj Diwedi, a resident of B block Dilshad Garden who played the role of Director at his fake company established in Noida’s sector 58. Anuj was running the company named Saint Martin Administrative Service which would dupe unsuspecting individuals by offering them a fictional opportunity to pursue MBBS course from reputed universities of Netherland and other countries.
The fake office had a well established set-up with full-fledged staff playing their dummy roles with complete dedication. Ghaziabad resident Raghav Singh was a co-owner and chief financial officer of the company, Delhi’s Lajpat Nagar resident Sushil Kumar worked as data entry operator, Marut Sharma resident of Faridabad was working as counselor and admission manager whereas Harjit Singh from Delhi was IT head.
