Foreign student accused of exam fraud
A Brunel University law student has been charged with committing fraud by conspiracy in order to sit an exam for another person.
Dev Aditya, 19, who gave his address as halls in Kingston Lane, was charged last week with the offence. He is accused of impersonating a fellow student in an English exam held on November 12th last year in order to gain a pass for the other person.
His Facebook page lists his address as Corringham Road, Golders Green; however, his bail conditions require him to surrender his passport. The law student also lists his religion as “liberal Hindu” on his page.
Aditya pleaded not guilty and will be tried at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday September 7th.
