Bhubaneswar/Cuttack: The Kerala Police on Friday found that certificates of Raghav Rajan were forged and alleged to be of rape convict Bitti Mohanty.

"The B.Tech degree certificate in the name of Raghav Rajan is forged. The certificate with the same number was issued in the name of Bitti Mohanty," said Josi Joesph, an inspector rank officer heading the four-member SIT of the Kerala Police probing the antecedents of Raghav Rajan who was arrested from Kannur on March 8.

The team found that Raghav Rajan had never enrolled in KIIT University, Bhubaneswar, but that Bitti Mohanty had received his B Tech in computer science from there in 2004. The team also verified certificates from the Stewart School and Christ College in Cuttack.

"We did not have any student by the name of Raghav Rajan. The index number and other details in Raghav Rajan's certificates were actually issued to Bitti Mohanty," said Stewart School Principal Asha Das, who gave the records of 1999 to the Kerala Police.

Similarly, the Kerala Police also found that the certificates obtained from Christ College in name of Raghav Rajan were also forged.

"They were actually issued in the name of Bitti," the SIT members said.
