Yavatmal: 4 persons, including the principal and 2 members of an education society, were booked for running a bogus nursing college in Ralegaon, police said Saturday.

"We have booked the principal of Bharatiya Nursing College, Tarachand Pawar, his office clerk S T Deshmathure, Directors of Trimurti Bahu-uddhesiya Shikshan Sanstha, N G Deshmukh and Manohar Bobhate on a complaint lodged by students of the college," Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) of Ralegaon Police Station, Santosh Shende said.

The college was started 3-4 months ago and the management has given admission to 24 students after taking donations and first instalment of tuition fee of Rs 4500 per students.

The scam was exposed when one of the complainants approached Nursing Council of Maharashtra (NCM) to ascertain if the college has the legal sanction from the body.

She was informed at NCM that college was never recognised by it, police said.

"We have been duped and our precious one year has been ruined by the accused," the students said, demanding strict action against the accused.

"We are examining the entire episode and the culprits would be nabbed in a day or two," Shende said.
