The accused of this scam are Kanwarpal Singh and Anwarpal Singh of Partap Nagar in Sultanwind, Amritsar. Police booked the siblings after a director of a local school gave a statement of the scam by the duo. GS Sandhu is the director of BDS Public Senior Secondary School in Manuke village and he made the complaint to the police.
