At least 50 people who were promised medical college seats by a Nagpur consultancy have discovered they were duped, sources said.

Rajesh Bansal, the head of Bright Path Education, and three of his partners - Anurag Thakur, Vishal and Narendra - disappeared after allegedly swindling lakhs from their clients.

"We had been offering medical seats with capitation fees of Rs 10 to 25 lakh per seat...especially in Karnataka, Maharashtra and Rajasthan...we were convincing these parents to accept the seats, depending on their paying capacity. We had been doing our duty with complete honesty, thinking the offered seats were genuine", Thadani said.

But she got the shock of her life when the cellphones of Bansal and company suddenly went offline, and were switched off for at least 12 to 24 hours.

She said parents called her and her colleagues continuously, since Bansal had asked them to show up at colleges to complete the admission process. But neither he nor his associates showed up, she said.

Nagpur's Bajaj Nagar Police Station and Dhantoli Police Station are still waiting for a formal complaint to be filed.

"(A) few days back, one or two persons (including Thadani) had come to our police station with a plan to file a complaint related to (a) medical admission scam and also to discuss further course of action, as they were also involved in this scam. They were afraid that parents (victims) might file criminal complaint against them," Police Inspector Mahendale Patil told India Today.

Patil asked Thadani to file a complaint at Dhantoli Police Station, since Pratap Nagar - where Bright Path Education is located - doesn't fall under his station's jurisdiction.

Nagpur DCP (Zone 2) Rakesh Ola said, "Till now, Dhantoli police station has not received any complain related to this scam. We are waiting. However, the employees claim to have filed the complaint after taking legal advice from their advocates."
