Sundargarh Town Police on Sunday arrested four fraudsters on the charges of defrauding several job aspirants with fake promises of jobs in Sundargarh Government Medical College. The accused have been identified as Sushant Majhi, Ashish Nayak, Chaitan Tanti, and Madan.

Senior police officials said that one of the accused, identified as Hemant Nayak, is absconding.

Sources said that the accused, who were part of a major racket, promised several aspirants jobs as receptionists, security guards, and attendants at Sudargarh Medical College. The accused took Rs 40,000 to 80,000 per aspirant after promising them jobs. The accused were proving fake documents, appointment letters, and identities. The letter pad of the medical college was also forged.

It is alleged that the signature and letter pad of the dean of the medical college and the logo of the Odisha government was forged to prepare fake documents. From joining letters to identity cards, the scammers issued every document to the aspirants and made them believe that the documents were genuine.

The matter came to light after some of the aspirants did not get jobs even after paying the desired amount. Later, some of the aspirants lodged a formal police complaint in connection with the job fraud.

It is alleged that the accused Sushant was providing fake documents and other identities to the aspirants. Meanwhile, further investigation in connection with the job fraud is underway.
