Delhi Metro job aspirant duped of Rs 60,000

A youth from a lower-middle class family in Madhya Pradesh has alleged that he was duped of Rs 60,000 on the pretext a job in the Delhi Metro, police said on Sunday.

Ramraj Singh Dangi, who hails from Vidisha district, alleged that a man named Amit Chauhan duped him.

Ramraj had contacted Amit after seeing an online advertisement which said he could arrange jobs in the Delhi Metro. “Amit had asked the complainant to come to Delhi and pay two installments of Rs 25,000 and Rs 35,000 each,” a senior police official said.

When Ramraj told him that Rs 60,000 would be too much, Amit said he generally takes for Rs 80,000 but was giving Ramraj a discount.

“The complainant came to Delhi on January 24 and met Amit near gate number 7 of Palika Bazar in Connaught Place at around 1 pm. Amit took the first installment of Rs 25,000 along with seven passport size photographs and photocopies of his educational documents and identity cards,” the official added.

 Amit had told Ramraj the job would be arranged in a week. On January 28, Amit told him to bring the second installment of Rs 35,000 to Aligarh in Uttar Pradesh.

Ramraj told Amit he could arrange the money only after he mortgaged his family property in Madhya Pradesh. He later met Amit at Aligarh bus stand on February 10 and paid the second installment. “At the time of the payment, Amit gave Ramraj an appointment letter which said his date of joining in the Delhi Metro would be February 17,” the official said.

However, when Ramraj gave Amit a call after a few days, his phone switched off. He then came to Delhi, where he found out appointment letter was fake.

A case has been registered over the matter against unknown person at Connaught Place police station under charges of criminal breach of trust, cheating and forgery for purpose of cheating.
