This is grave criminal offence for which one can lodge complaint with local police.

Any benefits availed illegally and wrongful gains are considered as an illegal act.
If you have proof of this scandal, you may write to the authorities with documentary evidences of the fraud played by the parents of the student who availed the benefits by cheating the government.

If you have documentary evidence to prove the allegations then go to the nearest police station to file a criminal complaint of cheating and forgery. The parents are liable to be prosecuted and punished only if they are found guilty of committing the acts in question. The punishment is up to 7 years of imprisonment.

you can send that copy of complaint to the income tax department, an inquiry will be initiated.
