A retired Indian Army personnel and a woman from Assam have been arrested in New Delhi for duping thousand of people across the country on the pretext of providing jobs in the Indian Army, police said Wednesday.

The Crime Branch of Delhi Police received a complaint that Ravinder Chauhan claiming to be a Major of Indian Army has duped 38 job seekers to the tune of Rs.1 crore on the promise of getting them jobs in Assam Rifles.

Chauhan told police that he used to impersonate as a Major in Indian Army duped crores of rupees from job seekers and Archana Singha of Assam was the mastermind of the racket.

A raid was conducted at Jorhat and Singha was also arrested. Singha told police that she was behind the racket.

Chauhan joined Rastriya Rifles in 2003 and in 2007, while he was posted at Baramula in Jammu an Kashmir, he got injured and was declared unfit for further service. He got in touch with Singha and collected money from more than 400 people to the tune of more than Rs.3 crore.

In 2007-2008, recruitment of Assam Rifles was held in Jorhat where she came in contact with a doctor who was Major in Assam Rifles and succeeded in getting three to four people appointed.

She earned Rs.10,000 to Rs.15,000 from candidate in the recruitment.

Similarly, in 2008-2009 she got a few candidates appointed of Assam Rifles held at Cooch in Bihar, however, she collected money from several candidates.

She began to appoint agents in different parts of India. Agents were made in Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, MP, Uttar Pradesh, Assam, Meghalya, Manipur, Nagaland and Hyderabad.

The agents used to allure students by promising them jobs and used to collect Rs.25,000 to Rs.1 lakh per candidate as advance.

Thereafter, Singha would ask her agents to bring all the candidates to Assam and would ask them to stay in some hotel.

She would manage some fake doctors and officers and would get candidates of Assam Rifles medically examined in the hotel.

She would also get signed a blank answer sheet from them. Thereafter, she would send them back and would ask them to wait for the result and appointment letters.

After some time, she would send a photocopy of provisional appointment letters to her agents and would ask them to deposit rest of the money before giving them original appointment letters.

She used to earn Rs 1.5 lakh to Rs 2 lakh per candidate from the agents. After collecting rest of the money she and her agents would not take their calls.

Till now, they have cheated around more than 1000 job seekers and have collected money to the tune of more than Rs.10 crore.
