Uttar Pradesh: Lower-rung Up Boards’ Staff Involved: Police | Bhubaneswar News

Bhubaneswar: Police on Wednesday suspected the connivance of lower-rung employees in board offices in Uttar Pradesh as the board invariably cleared all certificates as original and sent letters to the recruiting institutions.
The fake certificates that were submitted during recruitment went for verification (through verification letters sent by recruiting agency) to the board concerned.
The police while raiding the coaching centre in Balangir, where the racket was busted, found some verification reports, empty letter heads of different universities and organisations and letter of verification for and on behalf of different universities.
Initially, it baffled the police on seeing the copies of verification letters at alleged kingpin Manoj Mishra’s coaching centre.
They thought the letters were diverted through post office employees but later they found the connivance of the lower-rung staff employees of Uttar Pradesh’s boards.
“It is evident that the responses to verification queries that the recruiting agencies received had also footprints of forgery with lower-rung employees of the UP board (particularly board of high school and intermediate education, UP and Madhyamik Sikhya Parishad, UP). The accused perhaps shared the data of beneficiaries with the board employees so that they could respond to the verification letters,” said Deepak Kumar, inspector general of police, northern range.
Police said clerks in board offices in Uttar Pradesh sent one letter of verification to a recruiting agency and another to Mishra, the reason why police found so many documents pertaining to verification. A probe is on into financial transaction.
Since the certificates were all manufactured in the coaching complex using colour printers and software, the only thing Mishra would have wanted from the UP board was to help him in the verification process, said a police officer.
