Shimla:Former horticulture minister, Singhi Ram and former HP School Education Board Chairman, BR Rahi were arrested today after the district and session court here today cancelled the anticipatory bail that was granted to them in the fake certificate case.
Anand Pratap Singh, superintended police Vigilance told My Himachal News, â€œSinghi Ram and BR Rahi stand arrested and would be produced in court on Tuesday where we will seek police custody for further interrogation in the case.
The vigilance achieved a breakthrough in the case last Saturday when they arrested SK Mahlotra, a former deputy secretary in the HP School Education Board for his suspected role in the fake certificate with which former minister Singhi Ramâ€™s daughter obtained admission into a prestigious Delhi college.
Fearing immediate arrest, BR Rahi, the former chairman of HP School Education Board former minister Singhi Ram had secured anticipatory bail till 31st March that was canceled by the court today.
Rahi on his part has denied having played any part in assisting former minister Singhi Ram in securing a 10 +2 certificate for his daughter Upma Kashyap, even though the minister during interrogation reportedly told the vigilance team that Rahi had given him the certificate.
Upma though had failed her plus two board exam in 2005 at Lawrence School Sanawar but had managed to secure admission into Lady Shri Ram College, Delhi for the 2005 session on the basis of a HP education board certificate.
