Two held for duping job seekers
Kolkata: Two persons were arrested at the Bidhannagar Cyber Crime police station on Monday night for allegedly creating a fake website of state Tribal Development Department and duping several job seekers. The duo have been remanded to six days police custody by the Bidhannagar Court on Tuesday.
According to the police, during October, last year, the Additional Secretary of Tribal Development Department lodged a complaint stating that they had noticed a fake website in the name of their department. In the website, a "fake" order related to progress for the appointment for the rank of Group D in the department was upload. During the probe, cops came up with several mobile numbers. From those a few numbers were identified but police failed to trace them as the numbers were not active. Cops recently found that some of the suspected mobile numbers were active.
Their location was traced in Midnapore Town. On Monday, a team from Bidhannagar Cyber Crime police station went West Midnapore and arrested two persons identified as Diptish Palit and Jugal Kishor Das Adhikari.
