The Controller of Examination of the University of Pune (UoP) filed an FIR in the alleged re-evaluation scam on Monday. But police said the three persons named by the fact-finding committee for their alleged role in increasing marks fraudulently are untraceable.
After the arrest of two persons in dummy students' rackets in October, the Cantonment police had sent to the university a list of 28 examination seat numbers whose marks were fraudulently increased during re-evaluation in the examination department. Police had told the university that the information emerged during interrogation of arrested suspects.
In response, the university had set up a three-member fact-finding committee which had recommended an FIR to be registered against three exam department clerks. Senior police inspector Ajay Kadam of Chatuhshrungi police station said an FIR was registered by Sampada Joshi, the controller of examination. Police said the complaint has named three clerks from the exam department — Ashok Ranawade, Ramesh Shelar and Chetan Parbhane.
Kadam said teams have been formed for the search of the three suspects, who have been booked under Sections 409 (criminal breach of trust by public servant), 420 (cheating), 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating) and 471 (using as genuine a forged document) of the IPC. Assistant inspector Mahesh Bolkotgi is the investigating officer.
Ranawade and Shelar stay at University staff quarters. On Monday, The Indian Express found Ranawade's house locked while Shelar's wife was alone in the house. Ranawade's neighbours said Ranawade, his wife and two kids left the house on Friday night without informing anyone. Their vehicles, two motorbikes and a bicycle, were parked in front of the house, denoting a hasty exit.
Shelar's wife said she was staying alone since Shelar left on Friday and said she was not aware of his whereabouts and refused to share his contact number.
