Two held for duping people on pretext of providing jobs in NDMC
New Delhi: Delhi Police on Friday said that they have busted a gang of cheats duping job seekers for promising jobs in NDMC. Police identified the accused as Sunil Kumar Yadav (29 ) and Om Prakash Meena (44). A complaint in this regard was lodged at the Connaught Place Police Station by Alwar resident Sampat Ram Chaudhary, police said.
Madhur Verma, DCP (New Delhi), said that victim stated that in December 2018, he met Santosh Meena, a resident of Karauli district in Rajasthan, who lured him on the pretext of providing a job in the NDMC as he has good contacts in the department through a broker Manish Pandey. However, Chaudhary arrived in Delhi on January 4 for the interview at NDMC Office. He then reached Jantar Mantar where he met Santosh and three other persons, who had also come for the interview, the DCP said.
Later, the four persons, including the complainant, reached NDMC building for the interview where one person asked them to leave after noting down their names and addresses, he said. Thereafter, the complainant handed over the photocopy of his documents to Santosh. Santosh demanded Rs 1 lakh from each of the candidates for promising jobs in the NDMC, the DCP said.
On May 29, Santosh gave Chaudhary a 'fake' joining letter and told that he has been selected as a gardener in the municipal council.
Later, Santosh asked Chaudhary for another Rs 1 lakh to be paid to Manish Pandey and others for the "settlement" of his job.
The complainant, however, convinced him that he will pay the amount upon joining, he said.
Chaudhary and Phool Singh Meena, who also had similar joining letters, reached Jantar Mantar. Chaudhary showed the letter to the NDMC officials only to be told that it was fake. Thereafter, he narrated the incident to the NDMC officials, who laid a trap near Jantar Mantar and apprehended the two accused and then informed the police.
