The Uttarakhand Special Task Force (STF) arrested Imlakh Khan, the main accused in the counterfeit Bachelor of Ayurveda Medicine and Surgery (BAMS) degree case, from Ajmer on Thursday. Khan, who owns Baba College of Studies in Muzaffarnagar, has been allegedly providing such counterfeit degrees to many people for over a decade and some of whom are suspected to be working as government employees. The senior superintendent of police of STF, Ayush Agrawal said that the STF had busted a gang of Ayurvedic doctors practicing in Dehradun with fake BAMS degrees last week. The officials initially arrested two fake doctors, Pritam Singh and Manish Ali, in Dehradun for allegedly practising Ayurveda in their respective clinics with fake BAMS degrees and later arrested Imran, brother and accomplice of accused Imlakah Khan, from the college in Muzaffarnagar. They revealed in the preliminary inquiry that they had bought the degree from Imlakh Khan by paying Rs 6.50 lakh each, said the SSP. He said that both arrested accused were also planning to use the degrees to apply for government jobs as per their statements. He said that the police have identified 36 Ayurvedic doctors who are practicing in the State with fake degrees. The STF had also recovered counterfeit blank degrees of various universities of several states along with fake currencies and other forged documents from Imran. Agrawal said that the STF had registered a case against Khan and other accused in Nehru Colony Police station which is currently being investigated by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) of Dehradun. He said that Khan is a listed gangster in Uttar Pradesh and has been booked under the Gangster Act too. The Dehradun SSP Daleep Singh Kunwar had also announced a bounty of Rs 25,000 on Khan’s head. He said that STF received a tip-off on February 1 about Imlakh Khan being hiding in Ajmer. A team was sent there that arrested him on February 2 and handed him over to SIT currently investigating the case, said Agrawal.
