Dow University admission scam unearthed

Karachi, Oct 7: The staff of the Anti-corruption Establishment (ACE) Sindh has arrested Dr Mohammed Ashraf for his involvement in an admission scam, where students were being promised admissions in medical colleges like the Dow University of Health Science (DUHS) for Rs1.5million.

Ashraf promised students 'special admissions' for millions of rupees. However, when the Chairman, ACE, Asad Ashraf Malik investigated the matter and interrogated the Vice Chancellor of DUHS, Masood Hameed Khan, he found out that there were no special admissions being awarded to students in this way.

Therefore, Malik constituted a team under the supervision of the Deputy Director, Anti Corruption, Allauddin Abbasey to investigate the matter. The team received a complaint, on Friday, from a female candidate who identified the criminal as Dr Mohammed Ashraf. The man was demanding Rs1.5 million as admission fee from the candidate and urging her to make the monetary drop-off at Bank Al-Habib, Sabzi Mandi Branch.

A team was dispatched to the location that caught the criminal red-handed. Along with the cheque, the ACE also discovered a sum of Rs25,000. During the initial questioning, Dr Ashraf accepted defrauding about 27 candidates, both boys and girls, in the governor and chief minister, Sindh, quota of seats.

He further disclosed that he found the telephone numbers of 44 students from the medical colleges list of rejected candidates. A case was registered at the Anti Corruption police station and interrogation is underway. The News
