The cyber cell of the Madhya Pradesh Police has detained two people from Delhi who allegedly duped locals by promising them jobs.
According to the Bhopal Cyber Police Station incharge Manish Rai, the two detained along with three others had opened a website named naukrisearch.in through which they asked engineering and MBA graduates to apply for jobs.
“The names of those detained from Delhi are being withheld as we are looking for their other accomplices who would be picked up soon,” police said.
The cyber cell had got complaints about the fake website from several residents after which investigations were started.
According to the police, the accused took bank details from the unemployed youth at the time of registration and dupe them of whatever money they had with the help of a girl. The gang has duped several lakh people from Madhya Pradesh and is suspected to be operational in other parts of the country as well.
The police have also registered a case against a woman from Karnataka and two others who have allegedly duped over one dozen residents from Bhopal of Rs 30 lakh in the name of providing jobs.
“The two cases for the moment are being investigated separately but we are looking if there is a connection between the two gangs,” police said.
In the other case, both the women from Karnataka had opened two companies named Kalinga Infosys and Akhil Infosys in the Gulmohar area of Bhopal.
“The two companies had got several hundred people registered in the name of providing employment and taken Rs 6,000 as registration fee from each applicant. Last week the two company offices were found abandoned following which a case was registered against the two women,” police said.
