An aviation institute that self-claimed its links in the aviation regulatory agency was busted when Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) Bharat Bhushan received a complaint from a victim last week and investigated the matter.
Bhushan asked one of his officers to call up the institute and act as an aspiring pilot from a speaker phone in front of him. "The person running the institute did not open up initially and asked how did we got to know about him. When told that we had been referred by some DGCA officials, the person opened up and started talking freely. He asked us to download the form from the website and assured us of 100% placement. He asked us to come to his office on any working day between 9 am and 5 pm to know about the payment schedule," said sources.
Infact the fake institute is claimed to have several braches all across the nation. Following Bhushan's complain to the police, the cops raided the institute's Dwarka office last week. Bhushan said,"I received a complaint and investigated that by getting an officer to contact the institute posing as a student. The complaint was found to be correct and referred to the police."
