A city-based radiologist, who runs an ultrasound and diagnostic centre, has allegedly been swindled of nearly Rs 47 lakh by touts who promised to get his son admitted to a medical college in Mumbai.
Police said on Thursday an FIR in the case had been filed at the Civil Lines police station, after nearly four months of investigation into the complaint by Dr Rajveer Singh, the owner of Suraj Ultrasound and Diagnostic Centre in Sadar Bazaar. Police also did not rule out action against the doctor for paying money for an MBBS seat for his son.
In his complaint, Dr Singh has stated that he got in touch with one Vipul Goyal in 2013 when he was looking for someone who could help him get his son admitted to the college. “I got information about Vipul from the internet and contacted him. I told him that my son could not appear in the medical entrance test and wants a seat under the management quota. A deal was stuck for Rs 46.70 lakh. I gave him the money in two installments,” he said in his complaint.
