Bhopal: A person accused of fraudulently taking Rs 5,50,000 from a Pre-Medical Test (PMT) aspirant  has been arrested by Madhya Pradesh police. The accused was absconding for the past sometime.

The police said that Abhimanyu, a native of state’s Sehore district was living in a rented house in Samanvay Nagar Awadhpuri area of Bhopal’s BHEL colony.  He was preparing for PMT. He came in contact with Rajendra Rajput, the accused, who was living in the same locality. Rajendra had received Rs 5,50,000 from the victim promising him a seat in a medical college.

It is said that the accused had also visited Semri to meet Abhimanyu’s, the victim, father Darshanlal who is a school teacher at Salkanpur.

When Abhimanyu could not get admission in any medical college even after PMT results were out, he asked the accused to return him the money. After this, Rajendra started intimidating the accused and his father. He informed the education department officials that Darshanlal, the victim’s father, had been serving as a school teacher on the basis of forged caste certificate.

Finally victim Abhimanyu approached police and registered a case of forgery against the Rajendra Rajput. Bhopal police tried to trace the accused but he continued to be on run. He also tried to get anticipatory bail from High Court but failed to get any relief. Finally he was arrested at his residence where he was visiting to meet his kin.
 
Rajendra is on two-day police remand and being subjected to interrogation.
