The News report reads:
AGRA: A Dalit girl pursuing MBA was allegedly duped of nearly Rs 2 lakhs in scholarship money by a private college here.
Hindustan College student Madhuri, whose annual family salary is less Rs 1 lakh was in a state of shock, when she applied for scholarship and came to know that another private college (Puran Prasad Gupta Memorial Degree College) had already applied to HRD ministry for scholarship money on her name.
Speaking to TOI, Madhuri who passed with first division in her BBA, stated, "For last four months, I have being running from pillar to post for my right of scholarship, which has being taken away from a private college by forgery."
She said, "Runkata based PPGMDC used my marksheet, caste certificate and other documents photocopies to apply for scholarship money which is around Rs 2 lakhs."
Madhuri claimed, "Last year in the month of June, during counselling in Khandari campus of Agra University, I was being offered PPGMDC to pursue MBA course, but I refused and took admission in other private college. Somehow, the PPGMDC management managed to grab hold my documents photo copies, and presented me as their student and applied for scholarship money by pasting some other girl's passport size picture on the scholarship form along with my details."
"The matter came to my knowledge only when I applied for scholarship in Hindustan college and it was revealed that PPGMDC has already applied for the same to HRD minister on my behalf. Now my college as warned me to pay the fee or I'll be debarred from appearing in the second semester examination. I'm scared my career will be destroyed because of private college greed," she told TOI.
