Hanamkonda, Telangana: A fraudster was arrested on Sunday for duping a victim of Rs 9 lakh in the name of MBBS admissions. The accused, identified as Chaganti Naga Sai Srinivas, a resident of Andhra Pradesh, was apprehended near the Forest Office in Hanamkonda.

The police said that the victim, Barigela Vijay Kumar, had approached Srinivas a year ago with the hope of getting his daughter admitted to an MBBS college. Srinivas promised to get her admitted through his dubious organization, Vaishnavi Educational Services, and took Rs 9 lakh from Kumar.

However, Srinivas did not deliver on his promise and Kumar eventually realized that he had been duped. He filed a complaint with the police, who launched an investigation and arrested Srinivas.

The police said that Srinivas is a habitual offender and has been involved in several similar cases in the past. He has been booked under the relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Telangana State Education Act.

The police have appealed to the public to be wary of such fraudsters and to only deal with reputed organizations when it comes to admissions to educational institutions.

The case is a reminder of the need for caution when dealing with education agents. Parents and students should always check the credentials of the agent and the organization they represent before handing over any money. They should also be wary of any agents who promise guaranteed admissions.

The police have also urged the public to report any such fraudsters to the police immediately.
