JJ Hospital
Mumbai: The JJ Marg police in Mumbai have booked four doctors of renowned JJ Hospital (Grant Medical College) on the charges of submitting forged documents to secure admissions to the MBBS course. The accused doctors have been identified as Sayyed Chandni Ali Manzar, Khan Tausif Tayyeb, Khan Afrin Raees Aslam and Sayeed Binira Mumtaj Haider. No accused has been arrested so far.

According to Senior Police Inspector of JJ Marg Police Station, cops have registered cases against the four MBBS doctors under Sections 420, 465, 467, 468, 471 of the IPC read with Sections 10, 11, 12 of Maharashtra Rules 2001. Three of the accused have completed the MBBS course while one is still studying.

Earlier also, the JJ Marg police had registered cases of such crimes between 2000 and 2016 against many students for securing MBBS admissions on forged caste and backward class certificates. The mastermind of this racket is Dr Wahab Mirza against whom more than 10 cases have been registered. Mumbai cops are hunting him since long but the kingpin has so far eluded the police net. Mirza has reportedly forged hundreds of backward class certificates and facilitated admissions to MBBS and other medical courses. 16 students who had secured admissions in Grant Medical College on the basis of forged documents were booked and later arrested by JJ Marg police.

The mastermind Dr Wahab Mirza, with the business of forging certificates, has made riches worth around Rs 100 crore. But after registering of cases against him, he has gone underground. His wife is also absconding along with him. Cops have declared him ‘Wanted’ and put up his posters across the city with an appeal to people to inform police if they spot him anywhere. The accused kingpin resides in Agripada locality of Mumbai and has four wives.

One of the accused booked earlier, Dr Afziya Malik(24), had reportedly told cops that she had paid Rs 10 lakh to Dr Wahab Mirza to get a caste certificate, based on which she had secured admission into Grant Medical College. Malik was arrested after being summoned for questioning. The certificate, issued from the Nandurbar district, showed that Malik belonged to a scheduled tribe. She named Dr Wahab Mirza as the one who helped her get the certificate. Police said they are probing how Malik connected with Mirza to get the certificate and whether there were more people involved in the case.
