Incriminating documents like fake call letters, fake appointment letters, and fake training dossiers of job seekers were recovered during the searches.
In Bangalore, an accomplice of an accused was found taking two prospective jobseekers inside the GST office, purportedly for signing appointment letters as per modus operandi to show genuineness. In Mangalore, the main two kingpins (accused) were also found preparing to setup a new fake training center for prospective job seekers. All the three were nabbed.
It was further alleged that for the past two years, the accused were running the fake job racket and duping crores of rupees from jobseekers. It was also alleged that the accused had conducted fake training of jobseekers in Nagpur (Maharashtra), Dhanbad (Jharkhand), Patna & Buxer (Bihar) and Bangalore (Karnataka).
