Police on Tuesday arrested three members of a gang for allegedly duping candidates of various competitive examinations on the pretext of helping them clear the same.
“The gang members used to take money and original documents from candidates on the promise of helping them crack recruitment exams of Delhi police, Food Corporation of India, school teachers, etc,” said Sanjay Arya, station house officer (SHO) of Bani Park police station.
The police learnt about the gang when brother-in-law of a Rajasthan Eligibility Examination for Teachers (REET) candidate, who was duped, registered an FIR against four people on Monday. The police arrested three of the accused, while the mastermind of the racket is on the run, Arya said. About ₹35,000, taken from the REET candidate, was also recovered, he added.
The police found documents of more than 20 candidates with the gang members and also seized ₹3.5 lakh in cash, the SHO said. “They were active for over a year and operated in Sikar, Jhunjhunu, Churu, Nagaur and Jaipur. They did not have any way of unfairly cracking the exam, but just made false promises and kept the money of those who cracked the exam on their own,” he added.
Two of the arrested gang members, Satender Singh (25) and Ashish Kumar Jat (22), are from Jhunjhunu, while Bhoma Ram Jat (26) is from Nagaur. The police also found fake papers in their mobile phone. The three were presented in court on Tuesday.
