New Delhi, June 18 (IANS) A man has been arrested on charges of running a fake job call centre and duping 200 jobless persons from north Delhi’s Azadpur area, the city police said on Sunday.
Narender Gaurav, who allegedly duped young men by promising them jobs in a well-known Ayurveda company in Delhi, was arrested on Saturday night from his Azadpur residence, the police said.
