Two men who allegedly impersonated as employees in Udyog Bhawan and cheated job seekers were arrested Delhi Police last week.
Police said the two were caught from the Udyog Bhawan premises while they were interviewing one of the cheated job aspirants.
The police said the impersonators used to collect money from job seekers after showing them their names as selected on a fake Staff Selection Commission (SSC) website.
The racketeers had cheated more than 15 persons to the tune of around R10 lakh in the past few months.
BK Singh, deputy commissioner of police (New Delhi), said the duo was arrested after security staff at Udyog Bhawan informed the police about the fake job interviews going on near gate number 12.
The police were already looking for the suspects after one Sunil Kumar filed a complaint. He alleged that he and his two cousins were cheated of R50,000 each by a gang.
“Our team raided the place and caught two men who were screening the complainant who told us that the duo had brought him there for a government job interview,” said the DCP. A case under relevant sections IPC and the Information Technology (IT) Act was registered and the two were arrested.
Those arrested were identified as Rakesh Kashyap,37, and Salaluddin,32. The police seized the mobile phones of the arrested men through which the fake SSC link was shown to the complainant. They recovered forms of different government jobs filled up in the names of job aspirants.
“Kashyap and Salaluddin told us that they used a similar modus operandi and conducted fake interviews at other government buildings, including ‘Shastri Bhawan’,” said the DCP. The police are now looking for two more racketeers, identified as Noor Hasan alias Rajbir and Shan Mohammad alias Sonu.
Kashyap told investigators that he was running a fake placement agency through which he offered government jobs to job aspirants. Salaluddin was arrested last year in a cheating case and he remained in jail for about 4-5 months, said police.
