Kolkata – A job racket was busted here and four of its members arrested for allegedly duping several people by collecting anything between Rs 2 lakh and Rs 5 lakh from them with a promise of employment in the Kolkata Metro Railway, a senior police officer said on Tuesday.
Acting on a complaint filed by an official of the Kolkata Metro, the police arrested the four from different locations in Nadia district late on Monday.
“The four accused identified themselves as senior officials of Kolkata Metro Railway and produced fake ID cards and email addresses,” the officer said.
