BENGALURU: Two more people — both private firm employees — have been apprehended in the case involving alleged impersonation of MBBS candidates, taking the total number of arrests to five. One of the three youths arrested earlier confessed they did it on a friend’s bidding and were promised a payment of Rs 10,000 each.
The duo is Tanmay Bhattacharya, 24, from Kolkata, and Sharique Khan, 30, from Patna, both residents of Whitefield.
Based on a complaint by Karnataka Examinations Authority, Malleswaram police had on December 3 arrested the three youths, including two girls, who were impersonating selected MBBS candidates during the document-verification process. They were caught red-handed on December 1 by KEA officials, who noticed differences between them and the photographs in the documents. The three candidates were allotted seats in BGS Global Institute of Medical Sciences, Bengaluru.
The trio arrested on December 3 are Chaitra, 21, receptionist in a dental clinic, law student Madhu, 23, and choreographer Pooja, 24, all Whitefield residents. Chaitra’s revelations helped police nab Tanmay and Sharique.
