After arresting three men in the fake admission racket, Delhi police
will now turn the heat on SC/ST cell of Delhi University and the
parents of those students who had submitted fake caste certificates to
get admission. Police suspect the involvement of an insider, likely to
be from the SC/ST cell, as they are the one who check the authenticity
of caste certificates.

Sources in the crime branch said the staff of SC cell will be
questioned on Monday. Parents and students will also be called for
questioning, as they are equally responsible.

SC/ST cell is the common body that takes care of the admission of
students belonging to this category and issues cut-offs that are
different from the regular cut-offs.

"The students who had submitted fake caste certificates had given
wrong addresses. If the address in caste certificate and one on other
identity proof are different, then the person clearing the form should
cross check its authenticity. If he is not doing so, then either he is
not doing his job properly or he is also involved in the racket," said
a senior police officer.

Police said caste certificates were submitted at the cell and they
forwarded it to colleges.

Out of 12 students who were found to have taken admission on fake
caste certificates, 11 showed that they belonged to SC category while
one showed the certificate of OBC - all these students are from
general category.

"The parents paid for these fake certificates, so we are going to
question them and then take legal action. In a case of cheating the
liability falls on the person who is getting benefited; in these cases
it is the students. They will also be questioned," the officer added.

Sources said all the 12 students are living in south Delhi and are
from prominent schools.
