Re-evaluation scam: 3 UoP clerks get bail
Judicial Magistrate (First Class) R N Bansal on Thursday granted bail to three University of Pune (UoP) clerks who were arrested by Chatushringi police on January 9 for alleged involvement in the re-evaluation scam .
The clerks Ramesh Shelar (43), Ashok Ranwade (44), both residents of university staff quarters, and Chetan Parbhane (38) were allegedly involved in fraudulently increasing the marks of students through re-evaluation in return for money. The students from Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and Bachelor of Computer Applications (BCA) streams had failed in their subjects and had later applied for re-evaluation of papers.
Bansal granted them bail on furnishing a personal bond of Rs 20,000 each with the condition that they will not tamper with evidence or pressurise witnesses. The court has also directed them to attend the police station on every Monday and Friday for investigation.
Shelar and Parbhane were represented by advocate Rajendra Anbhule while senior lawyer Harshad Nimbalkar and his assistant Rishi Ghorpade represented Ranwade.
