Two persons have been arrested for posing as staffers of Udyog Bhawan and allegedly duping people on the pretext of getting them government jobs, the police said today. Rakesh Kashyap (37) and Salauddin (32) were arrested on August 4 from Udyog Bhawan here, they said. The duo has cheated about 16 persons till now. On July 28, Sunil Kumar Golti complained to police that he and his two cousins were cheated by a group of men. Golti told the police that the accused claimed to be working as lower division and upper division clerks respectively. They assured the victims of arranging government jobs on a payment of Rs four lakh per candidate, Deputy Commissioner of Police (New Delhi) B K Singh said. The trio first met one Rajbir, who introduced them to Shri Kant (Kashyap impersonated as him) and Ajay Kumar, impersonating as employees at Udyog Bhawan. The victims were called thrice to Udyog Bhawan on the pretext of filling up application forms, interviews, written exams. The trio even underwent a medical examination at the GTB Hospital here.
They paid Rs 50,000 each at every step. The accused even showed the trio their results on a "fake SSC site," the officer said. However, after the trio could not find their result on Staff Selection Commission's original website, they sensed something was amiss and lodged a police complaint. The CISF staff posted at Udyog Bhawan was apprised of the case and the photographs of the accused were shared with them. On August 1, the CISF staff shared information with the local police about the presence of suspects. By the time, the police reached Udyog Bhawan, the suspects had already left. Kashyap and Salauddin were nabbed on August 4 at Udyog Bhawan while they were carrying out a "job interview" of a potential victim, said the officer. Their accomplices -- Noor Hasan alias Rajbir and Shan Mohammad alias Sonu are yet to be nabbed. The mobile phones of the accused were seized through which the fake 'SSC webite' was shown to the complainants. The arrested accused also revealed that they have used similar modus operandi by conducting interviews for job aspirants at other government buildings including Shastri Bhawan, the DCP said.
