Ajmer Police arrest two accused of running fake recruitment company, probe to nab main accused underway
Two people, including a woman, were arrested by the Ajmer Police on Tuesday of running a fake job recruitment company. The incident happened in Rajasthan’s Ajmer. Sameer Ahmed registered a complaint with the Kotwali Police Station.
In a complaint, 23-year-old Sameer, a resident of Kota, told the officials that he was an ITI-trained electrician and was searching for a job. He said three months ago he received a call from a company named Job Attempt claiming to provide him with jobs in private companies and private banks. The company used to charge candidates in the name of training, ID, dress codes etc, and promised to provide them with jobs.
As he was desperately looking for a job, Sameer sent his resume and the documents online that they had asked for. Narrating the incident, he said that the company then asked him to pay Rs 1,850 for a dress code to attend a training program at Jhotwara in Jaipur.
After he reached Jaipur, he met Abdul Yusuf Khan, who claimed himself as the director of the company. Abdul then asked him to pay Rs 500 for police verification and asked the complainant to attend a 15-day training at their company office at Kalabagh in Ajmer. Abdul also promised Sameer to get him a job at a solar power plant in Kota.
Following that, he met Haider Ali in Ajmer who charged him Rs 3,000 and Rs 500 for training and assured him that he will get the appointment letter in a week.
Twenty days passed by, but he didn’t receive any update from the company. So, he called Haider Ali about the update on the job, but he asked him to deposit Rs 2,550 for the dress code and an additional Rs 5,100. Even after paying a total of around Rs 12,000, he didn’t get a job. So, he went to the police station and lodged a complaint against the company.
According to SP Ajmer Chuna Ram Jat, he assembled a team to gather information and discovered that the company had duped hundreds of young people across Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan. The police arrested 22-year-old Shaheen, a resident of Jaipur, and 24-year-old Haider Ali, a resident of Jeteran in Pali.
The police have not yet arrested the main accused, Abdul Yusuf Khan. The investigation to arrest him is underway. On Tuesday, police appeared in court with the two defendants and took Haider into custody for further investigation.
