Some BJP workers in minister of state for civil aviation Jayant Sinha’s constituency forged his signature to trick local unemployed youths into paying money for jobs, Hazaribagh police said on Sunday.
A complaint lodged with Barkagaon police station of Hazaribagh by one of the duped youths stated that a few local BJP workers assured jobs to ten unemployed youths in the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) for which they had to pay a certain amount of money. The party workers showed the letter to the unemployed persons as proof of their job recommendation and extorted money, police said.
The fraud came into light when the youth came to know that no such letter has been written by the Sinha, police said.
Dilip Thakur, one of the victims, said that he had met two people few months ago who introduced themselves as BJP party workers and assured employment in exchange of money. “I paid them the asked amount and he was shown the letter with the forged signature which was supposed to be sent to NTPC AGM BB Mohapatra.”
The fraud came to light when the victimes met Mohapatra personally, not having received their appointment letters.
Sinha has directed the police to investigate the entire matter and arrest the imposters as soon as possible.
