Krishnagar: The CID today arrested three persons from Nadia district for allegedly running a fake organization claiming to have 78 medical colleges under it throughout the country.
They were produced in Krishnagar court today and taken into CID remand for 10 days, CID sources said.
The CID had initiated the probe after receiving a letter from the Ministry of Health, Government of India on the suspicious activity of the organization ‘Bio-chemic Education Grant Commission’.
The UGC had also lodged a complaint with the Kotwali police station regarding the fake organization headed by Shyamal Dutta.
“It has opened 78 medical colleges in India and also launched a Medical Court which has no recognition from the concerned authority,” a CID source said.
Dutta allegedly was going to open two more colleges at Shantipur and Kalyani in Nadia district.
The fake organisation provides various medical courses such as DMBS, for which it takes admission fees starting from Rs 9,000. The monthly fee amounts to Rs 1,250-Rs 2,000. The duration of the courses is four years. There is no fixed amount for admission. They manage as much as they can, sources said.
Dutta claimed to possess relevant papers allowing him to run the organization but failed to satisfy the CID.
The team arrested two more persons, Dibyendu Hazra from Sutragarh and Ranjit Biswas from Debra Para in Shantipur.
