Police on Monday arrested a 35-year-old man who obtained his MBBS degree from Tajikistan for allegedly making another person sit for an examination that would have made him eligible to practise in India.

The accused identified as Manohar Singh, is a resident of Rajasthan's Pali district, the police said.

Singh had registered himself for a Foreign Medical Graduates Examination (FMGE) conducted by the National Board of Examinations (NBE), an autonomous body under the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, the police said.

This is a licentiate examination for Indians or overseas citizens of India who have completed primary medical qualification from other countries, they said.

The last FMGE screening test was conducted on December 4, 2020 and Singh was allotted a test centre at Mathura Road, the police said.

The result of the accused was frozen due to a mismatch between the photo on the application form and the one taken on the exam day. He was called for the verification of the face ID on February 3 but he did not turn up, they said.

"On Wednesday, Singh visited the NBE for the face ID verification. When the team verified the face ID with the photo taken on the exam day, it did not match," Deputy Commissioner of Police (southeast) R P Meena said.

Later, he answered a question incorrectly, which aroused suspicion and he was taken to the police station, the officer said.

Singh was arrested and his admit card, MBBS degree and application form were seized, Meena said.

During interrogation, the accused told the police that he obtained his MBBS degree from Tajikistan and was trying to clear the FMGE for the last six years, the police said.

He met a doctor who offered to take the exam in his place for Rs 4 lakh and assured him that he would clear it. The doctor appeared for the exam in Singh's place on December 4, 2020, they said.

Efforts are being made to trace the co-accused, they said.
