Two employees of the SC/ST Cell of Delhi University have been arrested
by the Crime Branch of Delhi Police for alleged involvement in
admission of students to prestigious colleges on forged caste
certificates supplied by a gang.

Upper division clerk Sanjeet Mahajan and office assistant Neeraj
Sharma were arrested after the Crime Branch found that they had
assisted the main accused Himanshu Gupta in enticing the candidates
and getting them admitted to the colleges. Himanshu was arrested
earlier along with his accomplice Vikas and Ketan Gupta, a data entry
operator at the Mehrauli Tehsildar's office.

Investigations revealed that Sanjeet, who was posted along with Neeraj
at the East Delhi unit of the SC/ST Cell, was in regular touch with
Himanshu through mobile phone. The accused would allow Himanshu to
insert documents in the files of his candidates. The duo would
allegedly hand over the provisional admission slips of the students to
Himanshu instead, on the basis of which he would bargain with their
parents for more money. Sanjeet would also inform the gang about the
cut-off percentage.

The police said Sanjeet was paid Rs.12,000 and Neeraj Rs.5,000 for the
job. Himanshu allegedly took Rs.3 lakh to Rs.5 lakh from each
candidate to secure their admissions on fake caste certificates. He
demanded the money only after the students would start attending
classes. The gang had supplied the certificates to nearly 40 students
since 2008.

"Raids are being mounted to arrest one Satish, who worked at the
Ghaziabad Tehsildar's office on contract basis and had allegedly
prepared caste certificates for Himanshu," said a police officer.
