A leading pharmaceutical company has lodged a case against unknown persons for duping several people of thousands of rupees by promising them job in the firm.

According to the police, Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd in Sector 32 filed a complaint against the fraudsters, saying that they created a fake email ID of the company and issued offer letters to job aspirants after taking Rs 12,500 from each candidate.

The candidates with the offer letter approached the company and were shocked to know that there was no openings, the police said.

The case was registered at the Sadar police station on Tuesday evening.

“We have traced the IP address of the fraudsters. The locations have been found in Meerut and Bulandshahr of Uttar Pradesh. Soon the culprits would be arrested,” said Suresh Kumar, in-charge of cyber crime cell.

Only a few of the victims have been traced by the police. Many have still not complained and refused to get into the matter.

The police said the accused had taken the details from naukri.com and contacted the aspirants. Interviews were conducted at different locations in Uttar Pradesh and Delhi.
