3 arrested over fake job offers
Three persons were arrested by West Zone Task Force team on Tuesday for cheating the public by making fake promises to provide jobs in foreign countries.
The accused were identified as Mohd Abdul Majeed, 30, Mohd Abdul Basith, 31, and Shaik Muneer Uddin alias Moin, 36, natives of Gulbarga in Karnataka.
According to police, the trio used to promise gullible people to get them jobs like restaurant supervisor, accountant, manager among others in Dubai, Australia, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia. The police recovered `55,000 and two cellphones from their possession during their arrest.
“While working in Marhaba Travels at Asif Nagar, Shaik Muneer Uddin came in touch with Mohammed Abdul Basith, who was running a CCTV cameras installation business at the same locality. Moin proposed his idea to Basith and said that he will give him a commission per candidate, for which he agreed,” said the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Commissioner’s Task Force, B. Limba Reddy.
Basith roped in his relative Mohammed Abdul Majeed in to the plan and both of them started getting candidates for Moin.
Based on a complaint from a victim, cases were registered against the trio in Humayun Nagar police station and based on a tip off, they were arrested by the West Zone Task Force police on Tuesday and were handed over to Humayun Nagar police for further actions.
