Delhi police busted a pan – India fake degree racket which consisted of three men including a Delhi university graduate. The accused are identified as Pankaj Arora (35), Pawiter Singh alias Sonuv (40), and Gopal Krishna alias Pali (40). The racket admitted that they had sold more than 50,000 fake degrees and mark-sheets using a highly organised modus operandi. The racket gave advertisements in newspapers promising to sell degrees of these institutes. They had set up convincing university websites to demonstrate their reliability. The degrees were printed at their press and sent via post. This racket has been running since 2001 according to police.
