Guwahati: Four girls were arrested for allegedly submitting fake matric certificates along with their application form for the purpose of admission into the higher secondary level at a city-based college in Guwahati. The girls reportedly did not submit the originals and mark sheets when asked to submit them by the college authorities.
This led to suspicion and the fraud was finally discovered when the authorities sent the certificates to the school for verification. The verification confirmed that the girls did not clear the HSLC exam and the documents submitted were fake.
The Principal of the college lodged a complaint at the Chandmari Police station and a case under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code has been registered against the girls. The girls when detained and interrogated admitted to the fraud.
Three of the girls were minor and were sent to the Boko Shelter home in Chaygaon and the fourth girl was sent to judicial custody as per the directions of the court.
