Hyderabad: 2 physicians amongst 3 held for phony certifications
Hyderabad: The north area job pressure police together with CCS police of Hyderabad on Thursday broke a phony certification gang as well as detained 2 individuals. The 3 implicated were determined as Kandukuri Anantha Kumar (47 ), an elderly aide with the Telangana State Medical Council, Kasaramoni Sivanand (32) as well as Thota Dilip Kumar (31 ), physicians that finished their MBBS fromChina
The Additional Commissioner of Police (Crimes) Hyderabad AR Srinivas stated, “The accused Sivanand and Dilip Kumar had done their MBBS course from China in 2012 and returned to India. After coming back, they appeared for the national level test which is mandatory for candidates who pursued medicine abroad. However, they failed to clear the test. So, they hatched a conspiracy to procure the certificate through illegal means and approached Anantha Kumar to obtain certificates. Anantha agreed to provide the certificate by charging Rs 9 lakh for each certificate.”
“The accused then collected the money from Dilip and Sivanand and gave the certificates to them by forging the certificates in such a manner that only the registration number was real and the names, address and other details were forged. After forging the certificates, the accused downloaded the same from the database and handed it over to the two persons. The scam came to light when two other doctors went to the MCI to get their certificates registered,” included the policeman.
The team after that discovered that their names were damaged in the documents, suggesting that certifications were provided to others. Following a grievance from the Medical Council, the city police started exploring the issue as well as detained the implicated.
