45 persons booked for duping students in to give IELTS exam in Mehsana, Gujarat
In a bizarre case, the Mehsana police have booked 45 people including the chief and private consultant company examiners and students for running the International English language Testing System (IELTS) exam racket. They used to forge documents to project that various students have cleared graduation and even illegally sent students to the US.
The complaint with the Mehsana police station stated “Mehsana District Superintendent of Police had received an email from USA Consulate General (Mumbai) and a leading English newspaper had reported that Nil Patel Dhruv Patel, Urvish Patel and Savan Patel were arrested by USA border customs while crossing St. Regis river, when they were produced before the America court, none of them were able to reply in English nor able to understand questions asked in English, though all four had cleared IELTS English language exams with 6 to 8 band.”
The chief of the racket was identified to be Amit Chaudhary and he had committed this crime with the help of a private consultant company. They had organised fake exams of these students in a hotel situated in Navsari in South Gujarat.
