The UP Special Task Force (STF) has unearthed a job recruitment racket by arresting six people from a fake training centre in Ayodhya district.
According to a STF release, those arrested have been identified as Raj Kapoor Singh, Vishal Prajapati, Vimal Kumar, Nakul Singh, all residents of Ayodhya with one Saurabh Singh, resident of Lucknow and Sachin Kumar Srivastava, who is a Prayagraj resident.
It further stated that they were arrested from their hideout in Fatehpur Kamasin village under Taarun police station limits of Ayodhya where they had set up a fake training centre for job aspirants.
The STF team has seized 15 fake training schedules, 12 fake identity cards and many other incriminating evidence from their hideout.
The STF officials said Raj Kapoor Singh, the kingpin of the racket, and others used to approach job aspirants in Prayagraj and other districts, assuring them of recruitment in railways, FCI and medical department. He said they had duped over a dozen of aspirants of several lakh of rupees.
He said other members of the racket used to introduce Raj Kapoor Singh to job aspirants as assistant general manager, training (FCI or Railways). He said job aspirants fell in their trap after meeting Raj Kapoor Singh and paid them money.
The accused used to send them fake training letters and take them to their self-set-up training centres in Ayodhya after getting their medical check-up done in a Delhi hospital.
The aspirants often realized about the fraud only after paying the full amount between Rs 5 to 10 lakh demanded by the fraudsters.
