Hyderabad: Close on the heels of the medical seats scam, the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) is digging deep into a similar fraud that allegedly took place in allotting medical seats to candidates under the National Cadet Corps (NCC) quota, it is learned.

Even as the ACB officials widened the scope of their investigation in connection with the medical seats scam by arresting Sports Authority of Telangana State (SATS) Deputy Director G Venkataramana last week apart from conducting raids on the premises of three other persons, the ACB received another complaint from a person who alleged irregularities in prioritising allotment of candidates for medical seats under the NCC quota.

It was alleged that NCC candidates, who appeared as guests in the Republic Day parade got priority in the list rather than those who actually took part in the complete training. The ACB officials were collecting information on the process of getting a medical seat under NCC quota to zero in on those who were allegedly involved.
