Bhubaneswar: As many as eight students allegedly got admission into the BJB Autonomous College in Odisha capital by furnishing fake disability certificates.
The principal of the educational institution has lodged FIR against the students while the Badagada police have started an investigation into the incident.
A forgery case has also been registered in this connection under relevant sections of the IPC.
“Probe is currently underway in the matter. Necessary action will be taken on the basis of the investigation. No one has been detained or arrested so far in the incident,” said Bhubaneswar DCP Umashankar Das.
The offence came to fore as the principal noticed some discrepancies in the documents submitted by the students. After conducting a probe, he found that the disability certificates of the students are fake.
Possible involvement of other students in the offence was also being examined by the college authorities.
