New Delhi: A police constable was allegedly fooled at the hands of his own counterpart, a head constable with the Delhi police, who promised the victim’s son a medical seat (MBBS) and duped him to the tune of Rs 8 lakh.

The complainant, Ravinder Kumar, has levelled charges of cheating against his fellow policeman, Omveer Singh, a head constable attached to the PCR department. The latter’s associate has been identified as Swapnil.

Mr Kumar, a resident of Badarpur, approached the Badarpur police after a long wait and registered the complaint. In his complaint, he alleged that his son, Parag, finished his Class 12 in 2015 and wished to pursue a career in medical. Mr Kumar, who wanted his son to get admission in MBBS, shared his son’s plan with Mr Singh who in turn allegedly told the victim that he could help him get his son admitted to the MBBS course as he knew a doctor who had connections with several medical colleges.

He added that a meeting was fixed and Mr Kumar agreed to arrange Rs 8 lakh. He borrowed Rs 2 lakh from his relatives, while for the remaining amount he used his savings and gave it to Mr Singh and his associate, Swapnil. He was told to go to Lucknow where his son would be able to get a seat. Following this, father and son left for Lucknow.

However, Parag didn’t get a seat. The duo then told Mr Kumar to not lose heart and asked him to send his son with Swapnil to other cities. Mr Kumar sent his son to Jaipur, Gujarat, and even in Delhi. But to no avail.

After much persuasion when Mr Singh didn’t return the money, Mr Kumar warned the former of taking up the matter to the higher-ups. But Mr Singh allegedly threatened him of consequences.

Notwithstanding the threat, Mr Kumar registered an FIR with the Badarpur police station on April 6. A case has been registered and a probe has been initiated in this connection.
