CID police files chargesheet in PGCET scam
Bellary (Karnataka): State CID on Thursday filed a
chargesheet against 25 persons in connection with alleged
irregularities in the entrance test to Vijayanagar Institute

the 500-page chargesheet to the Judicial Magistrate First
Police have named Dr Vinayak Prasanna as the main
accused. His wife Dr Vanaja, Dr Kiran, Dr Diwakara Gatti and
Dr Fedrick have been listed as the other accused.

irregularities in selection of candidates for PG courses in
VIMS during the Common Entrance Test held on January 30. It
arrested 12 persons on October 21 and the others later.

results showed the 11 top ranks were bagged by those who had
appeared at VIMS` centre.
