Thane: In­ves­ti­ga­tions into the rail­way re­cruit­ment scam re­vealed that nearly 59 can­di­dates were cheated by the rail­way fab­ri­ca­tion con­trac­tor of over Rs 1crore. A week back, the anti-ex­tor­tion cell of Thane po­lice stum­bled upon the scam while in­ves­ti­gat­ing the seizure of il­le­gal firearms. The cell team had re­cov­ered four il­le­gal firearms and 18 car­tridges, and held two, in­clud­ing con­trac­tor Rakesh Salunkhe, and Nitin Pa­gare, the hus­band of a KDMC cor­po­ra­tor.— Nishikant Kar­likar
