New Delhi: With a Crime Branch probe into
the fake certificate racket in Delhi University pointing to
some insiders` role, the varsity on Thursday said it will not spare
anybody found involved and will take whatever action required
into the matter.
However, a University official said the institution
will first wait for the Delhi police to uncover all the facts.
"We are making no interference in the police`s job, we
want the police to nab all the culprits in this racket. If
these people are found responsible, we will initiate proper
action against them," the official said, preferring anonymity.
The official was speaking in response to a question on
the arrest of two employees of the Delhi University`s SC/ST
cell for their alleged links with the racket involved in
helping students get admission in colleges on the basis of
fake caste certificates.
"If needed we will set up a committee of our own to
look into the matter. The issue will be taken care of and no
guilty person will be spared," the official said.
The University is, however, yet to receive a formal
communication from the police about their investigation into
"We have not received any report from the police as
yet, but the Crime Branch is also in the middle of the
investigation, and they would be able to provide inputs to us
only after they are through with it," he said.
When asked if the University needs to be more vigilant
to prevent such incidents, an official from the Proctor`s
office said the varsity administration was vigilant enough but
given the vast expanse of the University it sometimes gets
difficult to monitor everything.
"Our Proctorial teams keep touring colleges during
admission times to check if everything is going on track, but
there are over 60 colleges and the University cannot be
present everywhere all the time," the official said.
