The Gurgaon police have arrested a former employee of a multinational company (MNC) for allegedly fleecing off people on the pretext of getting them employment in MNCs.
Vishal Shokeen, 38, resident of Shalimar Bagh, has been arrested on the complaint of executives of one of the affected companies, IBM.
"Shokeen conducted campus interviews in management and engineering colleges in Bhopal, Indore and Jind and issued forged appointment letters for jobs in known global information technology companies like IBM and KPMG," said Maheshwar Dyal, DCP (East).
Shokeen, who was employed in IBM around 4-5 years ago, charged R50,000 from each college for conducting placement sessions, police officials at DLF City (Phase 2) police station told HT.
The matter came to the fore when the victims reached the Gurgaon-based office of IBM and found that the appointment letters were forged.
"We have registered a case under Section, 420, IPC. Shokeen will be produced in the court on Saturday," said Dyal.
He said though the fraud involved lakhs of rupees, they were trying to ascertain the total money fleeced from job aspirants.
