NIM head surrenders in bogus certificate scam

After being on the run for months together, the head of National Institute of Management (NIM), Ashraf Khan, surrendered before the
city police on Wednesday. Khan had disappeared from the city after cops raided NIM premises in Alkapuri and Karelibaug and busted a bogus certificate scam in December last year.

Ashraf had earlier applied for bail in Gujarat High Court but it was rejected following which he surrendered before the police. "We have arrested him. Khanhas been remanded to police custody for seven days. His arrest will help us in investigating the case thoroughly and catch hold of more scamsters," said DL Jhala, Sayajigunj police inspector.

The cops had already arrested former ABVP leader Kaushal Dave who working as assistant manager at NIM after the scam came to light last year. The management of Lokseva Foundation Trust-run NIM was found selling fake degree certificates and marksheets. The cops had seized 356 fake degree certificates and 637 marksheets from the institute's Alkapuri branch and around 100 fake documents were recovered from Karelibaug branch of the institute.

Officials say the institute could have issued over 2,000 fake certificates till date. The seized degrees include those for MBA, hotel management and engineering courses. The cops had unearthed the scam through a decoy, who posed as Bipinchandra Patel, a class VII pass out wireman and approached NIM officials. Patel managed to get a master's degree in mechanical engineering without appearing in any exam but paying Rs 30,000 fees.
