New Delhi: The cyber cell of Delhi police arrested five people on Thursday, for operating a job racket in the name of Union Health Ministry and defrauding at least 27,000 applicants by collecting registration fees of around Rs 1.09 crore in just a month.

According to police, the masterminds had legally operated a centre that conducted online recruitment examinations for government and private agencies as well.

They had access to the personal data of job seekers to whom they were targeting by sending employment offers.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Cyber Cell) Anyesh Roy said, “The websites were designed so convincingly that some news and job information portals believed these openings to be genuine. They ended up amplifying the news of these fake jobs,” was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.

Roy said the two fake websites were operated by the gang to attract the victims were www.sajks.org and www.sajks.com, both these websites were under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.

An investigation revealed that a bank account was opened in Hisar district of Haryana named ‘Swasthya Sanstan‘ which was consistent with the fake websites.

“Soon, we got to know that money being deposited into this account by job applicants was being withdrawn from ATMs every day. On Tuesday, we laid a trap at one such ATM in Hisar and caught one suspect red-handed while he was withdrawing the money,” Roy said.

The arrested men included two website designers, Sandeep and Joginder Singh, the bank account holder Surender Singh and the mastermind Ramdhari.
