Post graduate arrested for cheating job aspirants

Deepak Mishra (38), was apprehended from west Delhi's Uttam Nagar recently following investigations into a complaint filed by Vishnu Kumar Sharma that he was cheated of Rs 1.40 lakh by the former by promising him a job.

"Mishra was unemployed despite having a PG degree in Mathematics. He then started 'Exalt Aviation Academy' to dupe prospective candidates by offering them tempting jobs in aviation sector. He started branches in Patna, Ranchi, Jaipur, Bhopal and Dehradun.

"These recruitment centres published advertisements in newspapers to lure candidates. Scores of aspirants were duped by Mishra and his associates," V Renganathan, Deputy Commissioner of Police (West), said.

Mishra used to offer jobs of airport loader, air hostess, flight steward, airport ground staff and also MBA degree in aviation. He allegedly used to conduct tests and also taking interviews of students in different parts of the country.

The complainant, who hails from Rajasthan's Dausa, had approached police in this connection on March one.

"Sharma approached Exalt Academy after seeing an advertisement. He was asked to appear for a test and an interview at its Jaipur office. He was told that he had been selected at a salary of Rs 35,000 which would rise to Rs 50,000 and asked to join his job at Indira Gandhi Airport," Renganathan said.

Ranjan Kumar Rajnish, the branch manager, allegedly asked him to deposit Rs 30,000 in their account in Jaipur and another Rs 1.10 lakh in its Delhi account.

"The complainant informed his father about his selection and asked to provide for the money. His father sold out a piece of land for arranging the money. He deposited the whole amount in two banks and received receipts for it," Renganathan said.

However, later Sharma came to know that he was falsely assured of the job at IGI Airport and approached police.

Mishra was earlier booked for obstructing MCD officials while they were carrying out the demolition of his office.
