BENGALURU: Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) has been accused of another scam - this time it is ‘fake bills’. An anonymous letter alleged that fake bills were raised in the name of the university and some documents were also attached with the letter. The Governor forwarded the same to the Vice Chancellor along with a covering letter, asking to conduct an inquiry and submit the report.

Dr Ramesh in-charge VC of the university said, “We have received communication from the governor. The same has been forwarded to the high power committee which is probing the recent nursing college fake certificate scam.”

According to Raj Bhavan sources, in an anonymous letter, allegations of fake bills and receipts were raised in the name of the university. Some of the receipts have also been attached with the letter.

Meanwhile, sources in the university confirmed that the receipts attached with the letter come to `45 lakh and says that they are just an example, while it runs into crores of rupees.

The Governor even asked to inquire on insider’s involvement in such scams, if it is proved. Ramesh, however, said that the university is not ignoring the allegations and it has forwarded the letter to high power Committee.

Another anonymous letter

A few years ago, an anonymous letter received by the government and medical education minister revealed the biggest scam at RGUHS. In 2013, an anonymous letter was written to the governor and medical education minister alleging a fake MBBS marks cards racket at the university. Following the directions by the governor, the university conducted an inquiry and the case was handed over to CID.
