14 engineering students booked on forgery charge

Kanpur: A government-run engineering and technology college here on Wednesday lodged an FIR under various sections of Indian Penal Code against 14 students on charges of forgery.

With this, the number of students of Harcourt Butler Technological Institute (HBTI) booked so far has reached 40.

Fake documents

The HBTI, which had on October 15, 2010, lodged an FIR against 26 students for submitting fake documents to get admission, has also recommended Gautam Buddha University, a nodal body in conducting engineering entrance examinations in Uttar Pradesh, to cancel registration of the accused students.

HBTI Registrar Naresh Kumar said that the administration ‘detected' discrepancies in documents submitted by as many as 56 students admitted in the first year of engineering in the year 2010.

The HBTI gave a “clean chit” to 12 out of 56 students during an internal probe, while it has so far registered an FIR under sections 420 (cheating and dishonestly), 427 (mischief causing damage to the amount of fifty rupees and upwards), 468 and 471 (forgery for purpose of cheating) of IPC, against 26 students whose documents were found to be “fake”, Mr. Kumar said.

A Special Investigation Team (SIT) of local police will conduct a probe into the FIR filed against 26 students on October 15, 2010, while a formal request is being made to bring the 14 students booked on Wednesday under the ambit of the SIT, he said.

“We want to know whether any organised syndicate has been working behind the instances of forgery,” Mr. Kumar said. - PTI
