To add more to this is that the administration of Ankur Inter College has signed and attested the admit card that has Arjun Tendulkar's photo.
Acorrding to a TOI report, a source who found this major discrepancy in the admit card claimed, "It's a nexus of education mafia with private and public colleges operating in the entire state. Scores of admit
cards with fake photographs have been pasted on admit cards, so that during examination someone else can appear for paper- ensuring that the actual candidate is passed."
He further said, "You can paste even Hafiz Saeed photo and no one will cross check at examination center, as there are no photographs printed or pasted on attendance sheet of examination center. The entire system is managed. And even if by chance, flying squad caught the impersonator during exam, than they won't be able to establish his identity as the picture in admit cards are of some different person. For each such fake admit cards, candidates pay up to Rs 20,000- 30,000 to college administration."
Meanwhile, a committee has been formed to investigate the matter.
